[*=- Don't fall in love with a mirror -=*] <>hypothesis<> You are nothing but the sum total of the desires of everyone you come into contact with <>deduction<> Alone, it's identity crisis, you cannot mimic emptyness. <>evidence<> You can't let people see you change yourself to suit them so you overcompensate - stubborn. Cannot be just one reflection, you grow restless, but you cannot relect two images at once, so you play people. <>results<> You have trapped yourself, in trying to please everyone you only get played yourself or hurt honest men. <>solution?<> You must change, or find an image so pleasing that you no longer have to seek others. <>problem2<> You cannot meet new people as you are socially flat, empty, how can i be liked by someone new- I don't know their desires. <>my problem<> I care about you, but you are fleeting and ephemerel, I find you, then you slide away. Maybe I am trapped too, maybe one of us has to change, I try (so hard) but i can't help falling in love with the reflection of myself. <>the situation<> Don't fall in love with a mirror for the true image of a mirror is empty. mirror, why can't you become a painting?
