Dear Cousin:

When we were young,
we were so close.
Societal conventions,
keeping us… from
crossing that line.

I always felt
safe around you.
The big brother,
I never had
Protecting me from harm.

Now; your quirks,
Having become a fanaticism,
I do not understand.
You follow me online,
Attacking my character.

I try to ignore.
Sometimes I succeed.
Sometimes I don’t.
My heart hurt,
I can’t help but wonder:

What happened to my hero?
