Im pretty good at magic.
Not a sentence I ever thought I'd write because I'm bad at party tricks
And could never identify which one was your card
Lately though, I've been studying with someone
Someone so much better at magic than
I am, I find shivers of joy at every touch
I've seen this woman make ritualistic sacrifice in the name of a better future
Ive seen the clouds bend at the knee, and recoil so that she may see the moon
I've seen smoke clouds dance around her tear stained cheeks as if the bubbling passion underneath were burning off the tears as they fell.
Ive fallen into a deep and unbreakable spell by listening to her bird like songs
Ive seen her fight demons turned cruel by the tides that change at her very wish and baptize the hearts of men in pools of love in its purest, most volatile form
I've seen her tears freeze with sadness as if she were a beautiful portrait frozen in time
Ive seen her curse Gods only for them to bow their heads in shame and apologize like sheepish guilty children.
And sometimes when shes asleep at night,
I can see the angels that come nightly to inspect their fallen sister and ensure her safe travels through the world
I can only hope that I am just as skilled in this craft of passion and evolution
To be able to one day call her truly mine
