Nothing and Everything

I was nothing.

He was everything.

I wasn’t the fun one or the one with all of the ideas.

He was the affectionate one, all the time telling me he cared.

I didn’t know how to hold his hand without my palm sweating.

He knew exactly what to say at all times.

I never said I loved him.

But I did.

He always said he loved me.

But he didn’t.

He kept pushing me down.

I kept having to pick myself up.

He never knew my favorite color.

I always knew his every thought.

He only really cared about himself.

I only really cared about him.

He didn’t know how to make me okay again.

I did that myself.

He was nothing.

I was everything.
