Where has the Magic Gone?

Its queer and weird...

a gay situation...

when things of innocence are drawn in a moment...

finding that things aren't as they were before...

when before can hardly be remembered...

often they don't even believe in before...

The more that is known...

the more evil that has been touched...

the innocent is  perverted...

the playful is mucked up...

so are the eyes...

splattered with filth...

no fairies...

nor angels that might teach of faith...

everything must be understood...

else fall out of grace...

those moments of wonder...

awe and delight...

powerful magnetism to the light...

where love can be seen...

by looking within...

a moments intuition...

that it could be him...

or her that might life complete...

its counted a mirage...

so we slink out of the heat...

count everything relative...

enjoying the view...

then the moment is over...

nothing left to rue...

maybe we missed the moment altogether...

we slake our thirsts and desires other ways...

then those moments wont happen at all...

they aren't guarantees...

agency or will must be applied...

it all might come to nothing...

but would you miss the ride?

the shot in the dark...

a moment of magic revealed...

if not seek for things...

things not seen or understood with the mind...

open the heart and seek light and magic...

eventually you won't believe in magic at all...

it will be something deeper...

a knowledge about the world as a whole...

something that will make that moment...

a miracle.

For me, the magic here is the innocence. The awe of something in light of not understanding it is innocence. To remain in awe even upon understanding is the real magic. Yet is not also the miracle related at the end the belief in something, when knowing it cannot be explained ?

Put it this way, having read your piece, I am asking, is the "miracle" the return to innocence, knowingly ?

I won't try to pin down the idea behind your piece to one area so for me I find a sense of awe in my faith. As an innocent it was easy to follow what I was taught, yet having grown and explored the absence of "proof" it has not yet dimmed my belief. For me, this is miracle...

just because something is no more magical because of a lack of innocence doesn't mean it isn't a miracle as far as I am concerned. Faith as I understand it cannot be wielded in complete ignorance but the miracle is in response to a principle of existence that one has faith will yield the result. The cause and effect relationship between the act and the result doesn't change with knowledge but the principle usually consists of a serious of tested premises that extend beyond what a mortal can do on their own per say. The ending miracle is a word used for the awe and reverence I feel for the cause and effect relationship that I see in the principles of reality that others stumble into and those who know what they are looking at both understand and comply with on purpose. The overriding rule though is that if the rules are abused or taken for granted they can be suspended.
