    he said he'd never be like his father...
    i mean..
    he wasn't all that into magic, and see,
    his father
    his father was a magician, ****
    he did magic tricks
    he was
    infamous for dissappearances...
    his most famous being the day he was born
    his...
    father was a magician..
    and i guess his mother
    his mother was just another one of his lovely assistants
    because
    after she was easily dismissed
    he use to listen to her cry at nite...
    and he would kiss her
    and try to insist that everything would be alright
    yet he too slept under tear soaked sheet under the moon light
    right?

    but every blue moon he did see the mans face
    and his heart...
    his heart would begin to chase the dream
    but it seemed that a magicians scheme was a strong dose of reality
    so now he's wonderin...
    how he..
    always had a smile
    while he pulled those empty promises from that
    empty hat
    and he saw him laugh
    as he easily sawed his heart in half
    and he quickly realized
    he just...
    wasn't that good at puttin em back...
    so **** IT!!!
    he hated magic...

    and as fate would have it
    he hated anything to do w/ his dad
    like...

    the reflection in the mirror...
    or is that his dads picture?...

    ****...
    it would seem that he was
    an un-knowing apprentice of
    21 years
    now...
    he too leads a life packed w/ empty condom wrappers
    and tears
    soon he can't even see their faces
    slept in so many places
    that every girl he ever met
    became a coke-bottle shaped silhouette
    and he called all of em Miss Lady...
    you'd be amazed at how many names he could forget...
    hit, quit, and leave...
    no number...
    no forwarding address..

    he couldnt even recieve hate male from the males he concieved...
    young females condemn him jail cells when they grieve
    wishing that single mothers could sleep tear free...
    like he use too...

    wondering if magic turned that picture...
    into a mirror..
    after all

    his father was a magician...

    :thinking:
