one word moniker,
having the magical ability to disappear
when needed most.
Show me a magic trick
that doesn’t involve smoke and mirrors.
You put love in a box
and failed to make it reappear.
you sawed my heart in half
and wheeled it back stage.
you pulled my emotions from your sleeve.
like colorful scarves,
and discarded them to the audience.
You locked me in a container of water
and made me hold my breath, while you held the key.
but I’ve learned a few things being a magician’s assistant,
and soon I’ll be the one pulling the disappearing act.
