I Never Said

I never said I was happy; I only said I would stay. I wasn't telling you everything was fine, I was telling you I was fine with the way things were.

But only barely.

I'm not you; you've never really realized that, have you? We moved into each others' orbits; we found similarities, we found a balance, and somewhere in your mind this balance was the balance of an equation; everything on the left adds up to everything on the right.

But I'm not a static value or a series of values. I'm dynamic and energetic, real and whole in and of myself. We aren't equal, you and I. I don't mean that either of us is greater or lesser, I just mean that you can't match every part of your heart to part of mine.
