Of course, you don’t understand
You were the golden boy,
the favoured one
Named after our mother’s favourite lover
 
I am the Unloved
the outcast
Never quite fitting in here or there;
the anomaly.
 
You will never know
what it was like on the outside,
in the darkness
alone
always alone.
 
But I love you,
and have loved you
more than you will ever know
 
My brother
My friend
Dearest one.
 
My soul aches for you
My heart breaks for you
 
How can I show you?
How can I make you know?
 
But I would rather only see your smile,
Dearest One.
