The Magician

Bringing me in,

I’m the audience,

You’re the magician.

Slowly enticing me into your illusions 

And into your lies.

With gullible eyes, I want to believe.

I pretend it is true.

But we all know the illusionist

Is simply putting on a show.

The magician slyly makes it

All appear so real.

The audience watches in awe.

But I can finally see through your

Black curtain that conceals your secrets.

I am an audience member

Who can’t be fooled.

You fooled them,

But remember I know your secret.

Remember I won’t tell.
