The left radical is 'metal' (金). The right radical is a Non-General Use character meaning 'finish', composed of 'sound' (音), and 'bent figure'. It is used here phonetically to express 'scene'. Thus, 'metal which shows a scene'. Henshall suggests taking the right radical 'shout' and 'bent legs', and as a mnemonic: 'Shout aloud at bent legs in metal mirror.'

'Cause I love you
kagami no naka no akutoresu

You've broken my heart.
