Everything I'm Not

I'm spiteful and I'm mean, nothing that you are
I'm the falling rain, you're the shining star.

I'm all gray, forgot my color long ago
You're perfectly intact, my lost rainbow.

You are the hurricane, that leaves your past completely wrecked
I'm the one who can't be budged, the immovable object.

I'm a river, unstable shallow, with no form that I can keep
You are an ocean; blue abyss, mysterious and deep.

I'm the thin sheet, that's always cold during the storm
Your the infinite blanket, always keeping me so warm.

I'm the step-sister, that can't get to her feet
Your my prince charming, beautiful and sweet.

I'm the one who dwells here, my spirit, half of a soul
You're the one who showed me what it is to be a whole

That's why this exists, I hate to admit it, but I'm caught
Every syllable and word, because you're everything I'm not
