I can take the precious things
I can take the glittering words from the sharp in your lips
I can take them so high
I can make you so divine
All the things you say get into the verses all the time.
And it's only a little bit strang
All I saw was smoke and steam
And my ashes bit my knees
To get me out. I never thought I'd need you till I started venting lies
Everything I told you made me tougher than before
I thought I was so brave
I thought I was so special
As it turns out what's really amazing is what you have
And I have nothing left
To show for myself.
And every mistake goes unexcused.
It's all our fault and mine
Because now there is nothing unique about me
Because I ;et you get away with forgiving me
And I didn't argue and besides who likes a halfling?
A halfling loves no one
But the ones with the potions
I've been broken
I've been broken in
We play the games
I can beg for competition
I can ask for people to hear me
I can plead acknowledgement
And I can make some but
I thought I could be both things at once
Because mirrors are made
Of silver and quartz, diamond and clocks.
And we've got more lives in the glass than before
Humans are in love with their reflections
And nobody has money and time but we wish
You could say that mirrors give gold
For what they took
They took our original innocence.
So how could we even hold ourselves straight
In front of them? Knowing our imperfection? But we do.
Distantly I can tell you are less out of proportion--large thoughts
And I am mirror pieces because you're human
And the heart is fonder.
