you were patient and let me open up on my own terms and didn't get frustrated when i was so quiet

you told me i was being dramatic when i asked you not to break my heart

you made plans for the summer and mental lists of things we would have to do together

you knew I was sweet when everyone else joked that I beat you

it made me happy and calm when you would ask if i still liked you

you told me you loved me and got pouty when i didn't say it back every time

i gave you so much room to be yourself and tried to make sure you knew i liked you for who you were and not for someone i was going to create out of you

you were and I was.
and now we are not.
