The train is coming, you cant hear it but her can.
He drinks, smokes, everything.
Never loves his kids the way he should.
Hurts them more then he hurts himself
An 11 year old girl, stricken with the ignorance.
never knowing what’s going on in his life, afraid of that knowledge.
What happens if she find out.?
Will the pain of it all kill her.?
Don't tell her.
A 13 year old boy, hurt from this life his father gave him.
forced to deal with everything on his own, making sure she doesn't find out, makes her stay in her room so she doesn’t hear the sound of a gun.
Basically living on his own with the responsibility of his sister.
I want to steal him away in the night, be his angel to help him through the darkness.
He gets yelled at every night, he’s going to get hurt and i cant let him.
His priorities are all in the wrong place, all focusing on how to make his dad happy.
His father putting everything on him, ending up slapping him soon.
So steal him away.
Put the train tracks back in the toy chest.
Get it over with.
Stop with the drama and suicide.
Steal him away.
Be his angel.
