because you held me, I did not weep. Because you never asked, my secrets I’ll keep.
Because you were stronger, I felt weak. Because you were brave, I was meek. Because you could see, I became blind. Because you were cruel, I was kind. Because you loved me, I felt complete, even though you made me empty.
Because you were beautiful, I was an outcast. Because you didn’t rush, I was fast. I thought I was smart, I thought I was cool, yet once again, you prove me a fool.
Because I was the sand, you were the sea. You slowly ate away at me. You were the rain, and I was the sun. You felt no pain, but neither of us won.
You knew the way, I got lost. Destined to be your foil, at all cost.
