I thought he was a star and I was a planet, 

because it seemed like that's how it was.

It was almost as if I were made for him.

But that's not how things work.

I am not made for him. I am made for me.

It took me a while to figure that out

he is not the center of the universe,

I am.

My mental health is more important

then trying to be accepted by someone who

wouldn't give me a second thought.

I only need to worry about my needs, 

not anyone else's.

The author's comments:

When I wrote this, I was dealing with heartbreak and having trouble accepting it. At first, I thought something was wrong with me and that I wasn't good enough for him, but after thinking about it I came to a realization that there is nothing wrong with me.  I also realized that my mental health is more important than him not wanting me.
