ive been rewriting every line ive ever wrote
to accommodate you
until the eraser was almost gone
and the new ink was smudging in its place
until
my attempt at a masterpiece
looked like a complete mess
and i feigned happiness
as you forgot to even deign to look at me

i wanted to look at my papers
all redrawn scratched out rewritten
my attempt at perfection
saying nothing
and i yearned for every line i ever wrote before i met you

you walk away in strides of innocence
i was your nothing
you believe so much that you were my
nothing too
and that walking away is the same as walking towards
someone else but it doesnt matter
we were quotation marks
around someone elses idea

you walk away and i desperately search
for the lines i wrote
before i realized you were very much
more to me than nothing
