Because you were always just behind me
and you fell also
into a happier mess than my own
and you were always just behind
because my second death sounds like your regret
and it looks like you
seeing the wind in your favor
and trying to send it back to me
it feels like an end to your burden
years of laughter
gone missing
shared between us
and I’m just a hair behind you
and blood not withstanding
you are my brother
so for them I’ll try to be happy
but for you and the burden of your understanding
I will let you be alone.
