My Houdini

I never believed in magic until I met you

Love was a myth until you made it real

You made all the painful parts real.

I never believed in magic until I met you

Your favourite trick was making your feelings disappear

just long enough for the hurtful words to take effect.

I never believed in magic until I met you

You made my heart feel and with the right spell,

your, “I don’t love you anymore”,

you made it clear that even though magic was real, love wasn’t for me.
