The loss of my brother from suicide due to PTSD

The Demon

by Stephanie Barry

The author has placed a warning on this post for violence.
He's was a good man they'll say. We lost a good man today. He had a huge heart, big hugs and smile to match none, it breaks our hearts your demon won.

The pain in our hearts will always be there,because your demon whispered that nobody cared.

It's so sad to see your job and ex-wife would cause you so much strife. Creating a demon so you would never be able to have a perfect happy life. You wanted a baby or child to cherish, but your demon would make that dream parish.

Your demon helped you choose another mate......sadly this one would seal your fate. She was everything your demon wanted you to see, and she came with the child you wanted so desperately. All your friends and family said STOP! She will break your heart, she's using you....can't you see? But you demon said no....she's meant to be.

Your stress was it's plain to see, while you tried to create your own family. Your demon wove it's magic spell, making your life a living hell.

She lied and cheated and cast her spell, using her child to drag you through hell. Your demon said that's okay, we can be a family anyway.

Toward the end you started to see the one sided love story. Your heart in shreds you thought you could fix your little family. Your demon said I know how! You gave it your all one last time. But she shamed you and your love in front of all her friends. Then your demon shouted its time for this to end!

Overwhelming loss and pain filled your mind and heart, you felt you had no choice but to depart.....that's what your demon said. Your pour out your heart in a goodbye note......the last one you ever wrote. You hit send to the ones you love....while your demon demands you take the next step.

The gun barked once and ended your life.....there were so many ways and people that would have helped you with your strife. Your pain is gone.....but you've passed it on to those that truly loved you.....look what you have done!
Now our family is broken and your friends are numb....all because your demon won.

I will love and miss you always my dear brother Jim.
