all in the family.

bones littered the earthen floor
the carcass of a wolf in the
depths of the darkness,
where he preferred to be,

but today he had company;

you had summer in your hair
and jet in your eyes,
do you remember anything from when
you were more alive?

copper hair hung in low tendrils
she knew he could hear her lips
but no sound fell from them,
her heart hurt a little more for it

tried to mention that it wasn’t
the plan,
she had tried to stop them
but what good was a girl
with pigtails, to a citizen
of the damn depths?

maybe you hear me, maybe
you ignore me, but
clint let me tell you –
you’ll always be
a baby brother
to me

and wordlessly,
julianna was forgiven.
