“I love you”

My sister whispers softly in my ear

I’m pretending to sleep

So she thinks I can’t hear

Flashes of the night before

Push into my mind

Flashes of our fight

And my feeling of despair

But then so soon

She comes back to me in secret

With words sweet as honey

I know that doing this

She is cunning.

I sob and wail, thinking over the tragic scene

A loved one lost!

How could this be?

But then comes a knock on my door and my best friend steps onto my wet floor

“I brought this for you, just know that I care”

She said quietly

Handing over a heart shaped pillow with a picture of me and my loved one on it

I lift my heavy head to face her

Unsure of what to say

I feel misty angry swirling around my heart, 

I don’t want to always be near the one that has perished!

But I know that she meant only to heal

And the honey that she coated my heart in

The warm feeling that she is here for me

Drowns the smoky anger

And lights up my face 

“Thank you” I say slowly,

In my raspy, hoarse voice.

I slide into my chair at home

And look upon my desk

‘I hate you’ someone has scribbled on a note in red ink

Before slipping it onto my desk

My heart feels broken

I’m sad and upset

The only person I can think of is my classmate 

By the name of holly

Who came to my house to study for a test

I thought she was my friend

But now no measuring tape can measure my detest

But suddenly my mothers there

Along with the smell of fresh laundry and lilies

“It’s okay, you have me and April, the most loving sister out there. It doesn't matter what others say” 

I look into her eyes, which mirror the growing love I feel.

I lift my head and jut my head

“I know” I say

Before acknowledging the warm, glowy, flowy, honey coated over my beating heart, way that I feel.

That was really nice, and a bit sad, I guess?

Yes. I guess there are a lot of different emotions squeezed into there :)
