Love has become our new magic

For each other we all perform

We pray the next is different

We always find out it’s a trick


Yet, stupid with astonishment

Desperate to know the secret

& against all admonishment

We still beg for enlightenment


Whether we’re shown or being told

The secret is always revealed

& so it changes how we feel

That magic grows tired & old


In fact that trick now makes us sick

A spinning spiral so tragic

Nevermore, will it be the same

We only got ourselves to blame


Human hearts need to be deceived

It makes them beat & still believe

In miracles, through which they feed

Without stories, but tragedies
