I stayed away.

Even though it crushed me.

Because that’s what he wanted.

I distanced myself from the man I love.

I moved on, or so I told the world.

Went through the motions, and smiled when I wanted to cry.

Then chaos flashes into my life, destroying everything in its path.

It’s time to face facts.

Lincoln Hayes is the only one I trust.

The only one who keeps the nightmares at bay.


I love her. 

Thoughts of her came with every bullet that flew past my head overseas.

Every night, I dream about her and what we could have had.

She’s the only reason I came home.

The reason I stay, even though the very sight of her is torture.

After my brother died in my arms, everything changed.

I’m damaged. Broken.

She deserves so much more than I could ever be.

I’ll forever want the life I can never have.

That doesn’t mean that I won’t watch her six.

Boots on the ground, active and ready.

I’ll take out any threat she faces.

No matter the cost… because I’m not strong enough to lose her again.
