silent but troubled (day twenty two)

silent but troubled

 

his story was a sad one

 

his life was even sadder

because there wasn’t much of one

 

his friends

were the ones who were paid to be there by his side

at all times

 

his hands shook

probably because his mother shook him as a baby

and he could still feel it

 

his story was a heavy one

 

his life was getting heavier

 

i

one of his friends

paid by the hour

by his side

kept a watchful eye over everything he would do

 

though he never talk about his problems

 

i never saw any signs

 

he was always so calm

despite all the times he’d hurt himself

 

did it so many times that that pain stopped

 

he believed he was invincible in his left leg because of this

even though the doctor said he might lose it if he did it one more time

 

he did it one more time

 

never learned after all the times he came back from the emergency room

 

he probably never will learn

and that’s what makes his story saddest of all
