He walks like he has no troubles.
His eyes make me feel so lost.
I hope he never struggles,
for I know how much it would cost.

I die a little every time
he talks about his feelings.
I know I can no longer deny
the pain is not done healing.

Unfortunately, we no longer talk
yet I still long for those intimate walks.
I want him to tell me it's okay.
"I love you," I want him to again say.

But the rain is still falling
and I don't know what to do.
The days keep passing
and I'm still not part of you.

I know I don't have a chance.
In my mind, nothing is real.
I only pray that it doesn't take too long
for this pain to finally heal.

The author's comments:
My brother best friend used to be very close to me. He is two years older than me but we still did so much together. About three years ago, he asked me out and I completely rejected him. Not only did I say no, I didn't talk to him for six months. When I finally tried to reach out to him again, he told me he couldn't be around me anymore. Earlier this year, he decided he didn't want to be friends with my brother anymore. My brother lost his best friend and I lost the best thing that had ever happened to me. You see, I realized later that I was trying to protect our friendship, but instead I was ignoring my true feelings for him. Now, my heart aches every time I think about him, about every day I spent just messing around with him. He wasn't just a brother to me, I was in love with him.
