Hell is for Children

Fire, chains, blood. His own blood, soaking him. Sweat, knives, agony.

Screaming his brother's name, writhing, shrieking, decades of it.

"DEEEAAAANNNN!" He sat up in his brother's arms.

"It's alright, Sammy. Shh…I know, I know."

He went through this too, he thought. He went through it…For me…

"Dean," he whimpered.

"Shh, I'm here. It's okay, shh…"

I left him when he was like this, disgusted. But he's here, has been since night one.

"It'll get better, Sammy," he promised, still hugging me close.

Dean…

"Help."

"Shh, I'm here, Sammy. I won't leave you."

Even though he has every right to.
