Sometimes it helps to think of the cards as "literally" reversed. So you've got this guy, sensitive, dreamy, self-absorbed in his feelings. "Emo" we might call him. He's staring at his reflection in the cup, scrying, wanting, as pages do, to give this cup to someone (his message of affection?)....
Turn it upside down. Uh-oh. Guy's got water on his face and an empty cup!
Message wise, this would indicate someone telling you about a loss of affection or feelings.
Person-wise, as Pages are the "immature" aspect of the courts, then we're looking at someone whose just been disappointed in their affections. A guy or a girl with a crush who's been rejected. Or maybe didn't even go that far--they sighed and dreamed about someone, then learned that someone was already seeing someone. *poof* goes their dreams. And their heart (cup) is left empty.
