Empty and Used

It wasn’t like you see in movies
or read in story books.
I thought it meant you loved me too,
instead of just my looks.
I thought that I’d feel complete,
but now I’m empty inside.
Each time you look my way, smirk in place,
I want to run and hide.
I feel like I’ve lost a part of me
and I can’t even say you stole it
because I gave it up with pride.
So I’m left feeling
empty and used
because I believed
the media’s lies.

Prompt: Empty and Used
