You told me you were filled with pity
for my empty life.
You strove to fill the empty corners
and drama was rife.
My life was filled to bursting point
until no space remained.
You filled me full of your gifts
gifts of lies and pain
Longing for the emptiness you saw
I'm yearning to forget
All of your dreams and thoughts
that filled me with regret
Searching for the life you had seen
as an empty glass
I only caught a mere glimpse of it
in your looking glass.
