Betrayed by My Own Blood

I was always there for you
when no one else was.
I was always there for you
when you were in your darkest hour.

Yet you turned on me,
Betrayed me,
Like we never knew each other,
Like I was stranger.

Did you feel anything?
Or have you turned into one of them?
The enemy?
Are you ever going to come back?

What’s going on in you mind right now?
Do you ever wonder
what is happening to the rest of us
as you sit there with them?

I know the real you is still there,
Deep inside,
Not this monster,
That I see.

I don’t hate you
I never could
You are still my brother
That won’t ever change

The author's comments:
I was inspired to write this piece after reading many stories where the main character's sibling goes over to the "bad" side. I always thought of the reasons behind that turn and, if the main character could talk to them alone, could they bring them back.
