Lost Brother

Lost Brother

A Poem by Sir Joseph

The first of many


You trusted me with everything;

You trusted me with your all.

You made me a fortitude,

A place without the walls.

You helped me with my troubles;

You helped me to stop the show.

You gave me a place to stay,

When I had nowhere to go.

We began to grow closer;

You started calling me your brother.

My family adopted you in,

You called my mom your mother.

Then I broke the trust;

I broke it with my sin.

I shattered everything,

With the things I had hidden.

You've heard enough I know;

So I shall stop talking.

Meaningless words will cease,

As I start by walking.

My heart is heavy; 

I can write no more.

My prayer I pray,

Our friendship be restored.

Thank you!
It flows really nice, I can feel your regret especially in the last stanza. Sometimes we get hurt more with people closer to us, but perhaps with time he will forgive and become a friend again.

Good Job
