Dear Timothy

Dear Timothy,

Why do you feel the need to hurt me?

What did I do to merit such anger from you?

I turned to you in my time of need,

Trusted you with my most treasured gift,

Now you just want to steal her from me,

To pay back a debt that our mother has owed.

I once held pride in my heart for the man you had become,

Bragged about all you had accomplished,

Cheered for you for following your dream,

I had faith in you beyond belief.

I believed you above backstabbing…until you turned one me,

Now the truth comes out on how you really see me.

The mask of who I once thought you were has slid off your face,

And is now nothing more than a distant memory faded into the darkest corners of my scrambled mind.

You had waged this war on me,

You look at me with a hate that I’ll never understand,

You have become a symbol of all that I can’t stand.

You pretend that you are so much better than the rest of us,

Pretend that life for you is all so grand,

But my dearest brother you too have demons that you refuse to claim,

That haunts you in the loneliest of nights,

That commands control of your feel,

Has stopped you from feeling real love,

Has stopped you from truly live,

Two things you’ll never do as long as you are this man.

I hope one day you’ll stop running from the nightmares that echo in head,

Release that deep rooted bitterness in your heart,

I hope one day you will truly let another in,

Cause for us that bridge has been burn,

It can’t be mend.

So my dear brother who sees himself better than the rest of us,

I hope your fall from distorted grander doesn’t cost you someone else,

I hope those who fuel your hate will be there to catch you when you fall,

Because I fear if not you will be alone.
