the way back

i glaze into the mirror
here's what I see an
image that reminds me
of a broken sad version
of myself it pain's me 
to know the outside 
matches the way i feel
deep inside I thought
I was a better magician 
but my slight of face
needs work because it's 
not hard to read every tell
if you only knew the damage
you left behind it's been
a long journey trying to 
pick up every little piece of my 
heart that you chipped away 
at for the past 5 years
