Nothing to You

It was months ago
When I felt a spark,
A glorious glimmer of hope,
That we could be,
Everything
That I imagined,
And ached for,
As I felt those tingles
When I first saw your face.
 
It was awkward first love
But it was still
Something,
Something,
I liked something;
Maybe,
I loved something,
Because I can feel it now:
Nothing isn’t right.

Nothing doesn’t wake me up in the morning,
Like something did,
Nothing doesn’t light that desire in my heart,
Like something did,
Nothing doesn’t paint pictures of us in my mind,
Like something did.

Nothing.
It deserts me,
It leaves me behind,
It chains me to the ground,
It makes me a weirdo
When something made me someone
To you, at least,
It shows me
But a damp, dark cell
And a closing door,
When something showed me light
And made me believe,
It tells me
That I am invisible, 
All but worthless to you now,
When something used to tell me
That I meant the world to you.

And it is that
That still keeps me up at night.
I am nothing, 
I can only be nothing,
And I will always be nothing,
To you.
