Magpie negative 7: selfish, difficult.

Intimacy rebuffed, alas.
She wasn’t here for
What I was, so therefore;
I'm left with ‘a nice piece of glass’!

  22. And to think that Helen thinks that this sentiment was inspired by old age. Ha, it's old age that makes the glass look rather appealing by comparison.
