I’ve got this brother.

He’s lovely.

Really is.

Especially when,

He looks me dead in the eyes

And his mouth turns up into a smile

And I see the twinkle in his eyes

When he tells me to kill myself.

But I promise you,

He’s lovely

Really is,

Especially when

He tells me to do those things.


He knows what’s best for me.

He knows exactly how I should do it,

And why I should do it

And when I should do it

And where I should do it.

He knows

What’s good for me.

Truly lovely

He is

Especially when

He says those things to me

And joins the chorus

Of the rest of these voices

Who are just as lovely as him

Inside my head

That push me closer and closer

Towards the edge.

    First of all, welcome to MPS! This is a really good but tragic first write. Your brother doesn't sound 'lovely' to me. I hope you continue to write and share your talents...

    Your brother has obviously not got your love for him in his heart. He should be supporting you and loving you. Just show your love for him and he will be better.
