you told us you hated your step-dad, but we didn’t know it was that bad.
you said your mom was being ridiculous, but i didn’t know what you meant.
you said you’d been sad, but you meant you’d been incredibly depressed.
you ran out of the car when your mom walked out.
where were you going?
what was your plan?
and why didn’t you call me?
the cops found you
and you took a video in the back of the cop car.
why’d you do that?
you waited in a cell for a few hours,
i had no idea when it was happening.
later, my mom told me and
we cried for you.
you moved away from our small town and are now somewhere you probably like lot more.
it’s bigger there and “cooler” too.
but you must miss us.
you say you hated it here and you say
you hated everyone here too,
but you didn’t.
if you did, why do you get upset when we all hangout still?
and why’d you send us letters spilling out your heart?
it hurts that you’re not here anymore
and it hurts more that you don’t mention us.
but i know it hurts you,
you miss us,
we miss you too.
i’m sorry, i wish i knew how bad it was.
i wish i wasn’t so awkward and could talk to you about it when you came over
and i wish i could hug you for longer and tell you all about what you mean to me.
i’m sorry, love.
we’re sorry, love.
we’ll always be here for you, in whatever form you need it.
you’re never alone.
it makes me sad to see you so sad.
i’d go with you anywhere. ❤
