Nothing is There

I saw you the other day, looking perfect as always.

I couldn’t smile like I use to, not because I wasn’t amazed.

Because nothing is there.

I remembered when we first met.

It felt like we were a complete set.

We joked and laughed all day when we text.

Now you move me along to see who’s “next.”

I remembered we used to get along like two peas in a pod.

Now we are at odds, fighting a never-ending war.

I remembered your smile use to bright up my day.

Now looking past it, everything around me goes gray.

Now that I see you, I feel nothing.

It doesn’t bring me the joy, your appearance once brought.

I don’t feel the same way, I use to feel about you.

Because nothing is there.
