Mirrors

Mirrors

I felt only love for you then
I wish it had been about you instead
I loved everything about you
All of you
Not the words of the drunk bloke
The one who never forgives
The one with a long memory
Even I tire of the old ones

I felt only love
It made me safe
Laughing daily as we did
Why did you all take sides
Abandon me like that
A dark shadow was it
Do I really have to dance its tune
Are you serious

It may be seen
In love's old age of wizened eyes
The dream we made
Has it not come true
The one we made for me and you
I say sorry
I did not mean it that way
Failure and success are mirrors to each other
of this neither is for me
