Her heart was an open book with beautiful pages and detailed lettering. She wanted people to read her story in hopes that it would make them write their own. Instead, every person who came across the pages of her heart ripped out their favorite story and took it with them. They folded back pages and bent up corners. They signed their name with sloppy writing and with a simple 'goodbye'. This book is now tucked away in the darkest parts of her, because no one wants to read a tragic story with a bad ending.

I hate that I miss him

I hate that I care 

I hate that I figured he'd always be there

I hate that he's family

I hate that he's gone

I hate that I thought we had a special bond

I hate that I didn't hate from the start

I hate these tears burning my eyes

And that I believed his lies 

I hate how I admired

And how I followed

I hate how hard this lump in my throat is to swallow

I hate how I trusted

And how his name I did exault 

I hate how I think it's partly my fault

I hate how I love him

And how perfection was all I saw

And most of All, I hate to think

@Kingpoet2806, good work getting your powerful poem in editor's choice. 👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻
Speaking of brothers, brothers can be annoying at times, especially my brother(that in fact, I've even told him to get lost several times) but on the other hand, I cannot even imagine my life without my siblings(including my brother)...Everything happens for a reason...All we have to do is hope and see...
