Brother's Best Friend

The Way Back

Time heals all wounds…

That’s what they say anyway.

But I believe some wounds never actually heal.

Like the hole left in my heart where Kyle used to be.

The pain a permanent reminder of what I had, and what I lost.

A piece of me died with him that day.

A part of myself I thought I’d never get back.

But then he happened.

Zayne…

Unexpected and exciting, he’s everything I shouldn’t want and yet somehow, exactly what I need.

He challenges me in a way I’ve never been challenged.

He makes me see the person I used to be- the happy carefree girl with her whole life ahead of her.

It doesn’t matter that he’s older than me, or that he’s my brother’s closest friend.

All that matters is how he makes me feel…

Alive.
