“What the hell am I doing here, I don’t belong here”…

Behind the façade…

The wizard stands…

Dazzling the world…

With his magic hands…

Delighting the crowds…

Using charm and sorcery…

Allowing them to access…

And indulge his fantasy…

As they gasp in wonder…

At what their eyes see…

Someone so powerful…

The man he wants to be…

Projecting a version…

How he wants to appear…

But in cold reality…

He is nowhere near…

Just a simple fairy tale…

That was never real…

He never really existed…

It’s all so surreal…

Because it’s all a show…

And if they only knew…

That behind the curtain…

Lay the real truth…

A fake and a fraud…

Hidden behind a mask…

Where his secrets reside…

And he can safely bask…

Within mirrors of smoke…

Protected by an illusion…

That deflects any notion…

And causes such confusion…

As this magician speaks…

Mixing words with voodoo…

Perfecting misdirection…

So no one can see through…

And reveal him for what he is…

Because they’d soon discover…

That behind his thin disguise…

He’s a creep like no other…

It was a complicated life…
A complex web of white lies…
She wore multicolored masks…
As she hid in her disguise…
Looking for something special…
But she wasn’t sure what…
Yet forever wanting more…
Never happy with what she’d got…

With a head that wasn’t thinking…
And a heart that had malfunctioned…
She tossed and turned in vicious circles…
Surrounded by such dysfunction…
Stranded in the stratosphere…
All her promises disregarded…
Running away to another world…
Trying to finish what she started…

She waved the wand to ignite…
Hoping as she wove the spell…
That it would drive him crazy…
And place him in a love-struck cell…
She knew that he would catch it…
But still set fire to his soul…
Pushing him down a narrow path…
That sent him out of control…

It infused and it infected…
Like a tattoo etched on his skull…
And he couldn’t hold back…
From her invisible sexual pull
Falling headlong for her charms…
Captivated by her dark magic…
She tormented his weak soul…
Having effects so very tragic…

As it simply got too much…
He couldn’t take it anymore…
Lying Black, White and dead…
After he hit the concreate floor…
Now she holds on to every star…
Whilst burning in the sun’s rays…
As only in dreams can they dance…
Whilst her life grows darker by the day…
