Potential

In physics we learn that an object with
Zero potential energy can still lose
Energy because zero is relative,
Which is why when you told me:
“You have to be selfish and think of
Yourself.
You can’t keep giving away pieces of
Your heart or else you will be left with
Nothing,”
I laughed. Because nothing seemed
Infinitely better than everything
I felt in that moment.
Nothing meant not having to feel the
Weight of the world leave its imprint on
My shoulders because I was too
Weak to set it down. After
Falling
From the edge, after
Drowning
In the sea, after being
Beaten
Down into the ground,
No.
Zero didn’t seem that bad.
