"Imagining the future is a kind of nostalgia"

I am you
But I am not.
When you are missing
I cannot move,
Cannot speak,
Cannot think.
Without you, I am nothing.
I am trapped inside of you,
But i cannot change you.
I can only show you
What you you really are
And hope for it to be enough
But it never is.
You come back to me
With your crying eyes
Begging it to stop.
I don't know your story.
I cannot tell you
Why you feel this why.
I cannot help you.
I only know you
When you are me
And I am you.
I cannot help you.
I can only show you
What you really are.

Interesting thought. I've never read "Mirror" before. I like to see other people's veiwpoint on this, personally I think it's completely different for reflections, but this is an idea too.
