I've been writing short stories and poems independently for a while now. In fact, whenever I get the chance, I work on my short stories, for which I use the word "short" VERY loosely. I'm looking forward to seeing your opinions!

{Completed Melody: HERE.} 



...hello, brother. 
It's been quite a long time... 
We haven't seen each other
Since the eve of wartime. 
We haven't spoken since
I committed that crime. 
I am sorry...
I wish we had more time... 

Nobody else could see you
the way I always did... 
But no one else even tried to, 
Even when you were a kid... 
You were teased, and so was I, 
but I would always have your back. 
Even with...
The greater strength I lack... 

To me, the world had always seemed
like a big and scary place, 
but for you, it all was just as you dreamed
with a smile on your face. 
I have even tried to smile, too, 
but it's not quite the same,
I just wish... 
That I was not to blame... 

...hello, brother. 
It's been quite a long time... 
We haven't seen each other
Since the eve of wartime. 
We haven't spoken since
I committed that crime. 
I am sorry...
I wish we had more time... 

My soul is full of darkness, 
while yours was full of light. 
and nobody else would ever ask me 
if I really was alright. 
But I knew I could always count on you, 
you're the only one that cared. 
I just wish... 
That we both had been prepared... 

The others went to war
but you had tried to keep the peace. 
But then they hit and beat and broke down your door 
and the hardships only increase. 
In a fit of anger, I shot at them 
with all of my might. 
Then I looked... 
And you were filled with fright... 

...hello, brother. 
It's been quite a long time... 
We haven't seen each other
Since the eve of wartime. 
We haven't spoken since
I committed that crime. 
I am sorry...
I wish we had more time... 

Now that you're gone, 
I feel like I lost my way... 
There's no one else who will ask 
if I'm really okay. 
I love you and I miss you, 
and know I always will 
I just wish... 
It was me they had to kill... 

It's gotten very quiet
ever since you went away, 
I will never here again 
that old rhyme you'd always say: 
"Now now, brother, dearest, don't you cry,
don't shed another tear, 
do not worry, 
for your brother is right here." 

...my dearest brother...
It's been quite a long time... 
We haven't seen each other
Since the eve of wartime. 
We haven't spoken since
I committed that crime. 
I am sorry...
I wish we had more time... 

I am sorry... 
I wish... we had... more... time...

    Don't worry, it's okay. I totally get it.

    Sorry if my comments are short and kind of pointless. I woke up at 12:34 P.M. today and my head is all messed up.

    Thanks!

    I'm actually planning on using this for a group act for my school's talent show next year! (Next year because the auditions have already happened this year. I'm doing a solo act this year.)
