I believe that everything happens for a reason. People change so that you can learn to let go, things go wrong so that you appreciate them when theyre right, and sometimes good things fall apart so that better things can fall together -Marilyn Monroe

i smile politely,
as you talk of my beauty,
i attempt a laugh
as you try to impress me,
and i try not to be stiff
as you hug me goodbye.
because i am in love
with your brother.
your older brother,
whos warm eyes i cant forget
whos smile
makes me want
to place my palm gently,
lovingly on his cheek.
the brother who
has always known me,
and who i have always loved.

the one who doesnt love me back,
who pushed me away...

so il politely smile,
as you say cheesy compliments,
and il attempt a laugh
for your benefit,
and il allow you to hug me,
but dont ask for my heart,
because your blood and kin has it
locked tightly away.

I actually did fall in love with my friends brother, but i did not use him to get closer to his brother. but this is the honest tale of how i fell in love with a guy two yrs older than me, and i couldnt help it no matter how much damage it caused.
