Magic Or Tragic



How would we define the difference between magic and tragic Your first kiss under a big bright yellow moon is definitely “magic” Or maybe in later years when you pull out a ring And ask her to marry you and she says, “Yes oh yes, my darling Fred” When your actual name is Anthony!!! WOW! That's not what I would call “magic”... that's more like “tragic!” It's “magic” when your first wee one comes along But has a strong resemblance to your friend Howard You question your dear wifey poo about it And she confesses to an affair with not only Howard but with six others That's tragic... oh yeah Then you tell her you forgive her, it's all in the past That's magic! Life is filled with “magic” and “tragic” events When “magic” wins you'll have a warm loving relationship! © Jack Ellison 2014

Tragic Love

They made their camp across the tracks upon the edge of town.
Their colored wagons in a circle, anchored to the ground.
Each night their music could be heard drifting through the air.
Their singing and their dancing, a tradition that they shared.

They cooked their food by fire and they bathed inside the pond.
But none would cross the railroad tracks or venture much beyond.
‘No gypsies, tramps or thieves allowed,’ written on a sign.
‘No crossing back and forth, in either way across the line.’

But there were two who crossed the line at midnight every night.
Their burning love ignited underneath the starry light.
No wooden sign or words of hate could separate the two.
Their passion was undying, and their love was strong and true.

Sadly, the two lovers did not know the strength of hate.
Until they were discovered and they met their tragic fate.
Now their ghosts still meet at midnight underneath the moon.
Two lovers bound forever, their love was gone too soon.

Before The Tragic End

If your hearts a brutal storm, I will walk right through.
If your hearts on fire, I will bare that pain too.
Theres not a thing, I wouldnt do for you.
I'd give my life, just to the see the one smile.
Not one hiding a victom, but one ensuring that she will stay for a while.
Not the one baring the girl who's insane, not the one who wants her life to end,
but the one who knows in me, she can depend.
All before the tragic end.

A Tragic Love Story

Cold and frigid,
just like ice
I really should have
thought twice
About falling in
love with you
Doubting all the
stories were true
About the way you
treat women
If I could do it all
again
I wouldn't be so
blind and careless
Letting my heart be
so fearless
Falling for each
word and gesture
That you would treat
me much better
Than past loves and
never cheat
Making me feel
complete
For a while you were
fine
The chance I took to
make you mine
I thought would be
worth every minute
A happy life when
you are in it
Days, weeks, months
then our first year
Celebrating so much
care
AN anniversary I
wont forget
But not one  I'll
ever let
Leave my mind as
long as I
Keep it there, my
heart won't die
From mistakes like
this anymore
Cause when I opened
up the door
Presents in my arms
for you
You gave me a
surprise too
Wrapped up in your
arms so tight
A secret lover in
the night
That was just as
shocked as me
Two victims of a
love story
With a sad ending
that is cruel
Because of a lying
fool
That doesn't care
who he hurts
He just likes to
hunt and flirt

Tragic Irony

Do you ever find yourself starving eating the words you just said. Or that thing you did, that makes you hang your head in shame. This is my reality! I never wanted my life to turn out this way. Had things not slip from the track I placed us on, you’d never been gone. Course maybe I’m wrong. Things could have been destined for failure all a long. In that case I was screwed either way. Yet that doesn’t ease the pain, that I face on a day to day basis. I miss looking in the mirror at our faces. Their are those times when all my thoughts are gathered. Placed in one small unit. Their shut off to hear your laughter. Yours, is the only conversation I’m after. I could be struck dead in that moment, and know I died happy. Maybe this is the best thing that could happen for me, Because I’m scared of a complete loss of you. I’m like a baby boy, still needing to be held & feed then tucked into bed, a sweet dream and a kiss on the forehead. I’m beginning to think I never was alive, till this moment. Reflecting back; I cringe at those thoughts that put me where I am today. I think about you crying, or those times we fought, and this puts me in a sad way. Especially those times you begged me to stay. Now I walk for miles in those shoes, begging just the same. Tragic Irony, Everyone around can see, but me. Karma, definitely. This is coming in 10 fold. Teaching me what it feels like not to have the one you love To hold. If this were a card game Id understand why you’d fold. Playing these cards to bold. Right now I’m in the darkness, butt ass naked and cold. You’re looking down to say How’s this feel Jay?

A Tragic Day

Up the steep wall Scotty climbed, soon he would be out of time
The ravine stood proud and tall, death was waiting if he'd fall
Down below they snapped their jaws, flung and threw their angry claws
Their eyes, they swirled round and round, hoping supper would be found

Scotty looked up, up above, he longed just to save his love
Lucy stood, tear in her eye, her face showed pain and she cried
Lucy wore a belt of rope, not by choice, not by her vote
A bandit had tied her there, took her purse, left without care

Scotty did put up a fight, Scotty fought with all his might
He got pushed over the edge, the bandit laughed from the ledge
Two hearts beat for each other, hoping not for another
Several more steps tot he top, love would not let Scotty stop

He huffed and puffed, pressing on, his strength was weak but not gone
Almost there, a few more feet, upon his face the sun beat
Then the edge found his bare hand, finally! the thought was grand
One more heave, Scotty was up, he stood, he held the golden cup

He ran straight for Lucy's side, happy they were, smiles wide
"Lucy, Lucy, I love you!" they were safe, their love was true
The day had been filled with fear, but that has now past, joy is here
The sunset now danced with glee, sadness was gone, jubilee

A sad and tragic death

(This is a true story)

While a small chested lady was having breast enlargement surgery, she died.
Her boyfriend wanted her to have the surgery because he wasn't satisfied.
This poor lady's death was very sad and tragic.
She died because the doctor accidentally gave her too much anesthetic.
Because of her boyfriend, she's no longer around.
That jerk is enjoying life while she's in the ground.
If he couldn't love her for who she was, he should've set her free.
That wonderful lady deserved to be loved for her personality.

Tragic Love

I’ve never felt like this before,
I’ve never loved a man.
I’ve never felt completely safe
Just by holding someone’s hand.

I can’t believe we lasted so long,
What do you have there?
I can’t believe you’re on your knee
So this is how much you care.

I love you so my dear,
Enough to say yes.
I love you to the ends of the earth.
So much, I’ll even wear this dress.

Why are we fighting like this?
Won't you please sleep next to me?
Why don’t you come home on time?
I’m too scared to face reality.

How did this happen?
I can’t believe I was so stupid.
How could I not have seen?
I though it had been the work of Cupid.

Now my heart is shattered.
While your heart is just fine.
Now I'm all alone again,
Knowing you were never mine.

I’ll never fall in love again.
You’ve destroyed me.
I’ll never trust another man.
Seeing as you’re left with ALL our money.

I must thank you though.
You’ve taught me a lesson I hold quite dear.
Never fall in love.
And never believe the words that you hear.

Tragic Magic

We thought our love was magic
It turned to be tragic
We thought we were one soul
When neither had one
We hid the heart God gave us
We ran away from ourselves
The passion in my heart that burnt like flames
Turned to the rage of a fire
The sugar in my soul would never ease the vinegar in your heart
The stings of my heart never could play to your song of sour grapes
When the windows of my soul cascaded like a waterfall
My tears became the rapids of a river
When all I wanted was to be dipped in the moonlight
You dropped me in hell

Tragic Juliet

These days have faded
Your nights are dead
Mush together 
Inside her head
The act is so selfish
Her lips quiver in fear
She knows it’s over
She senses you’re there
She won’t blackmail you again 
Her mental wounds you can’t mend. 
	
Juliet however still reaches 
For your hand. 
She still loves you. 
And wishes you’d understand
Why won’t you hold her anymore?
He screams still echo 
As you slam the door.

She stands alone 
It was your mistake too.
Yet you blame her. 
Have you forgotten 
That it was you? 
You stole her innocence 
You didn’t think twice
So why is it only 
Her paying for the crime. 

She kept your letters 
She remembered those date’s 
But you forget her
It’s her that you hate
She stands alone. 
Skin pale
Knife in her hands
She gets on her knees
Ready to meet her fate. 

You turn down the corridor
Run back to the door
Sweet Juliet 
She’s lying dead on the floor.

LOVE IS TRAGIC

Love is tragic
With a harmful feeling
Of intense pain
Never fading
love is numb 
With no feelings

Love is sorrow
With a broken heart
Shattered to pieces
Then torn apart
Love is blue
With no repairs

Love is misery
With constant company
So completly alone
Consumed by loneliness
Love is empty
With no fillers

Love is saddness
With a weeping soul
Inside crying always
Endless tear drops
Love is falling
With no tissues

Love is harmful
With a throbing pain
So distracting
So hurtful 
Love is aching
With no soothers

Love is worthless
Love is pointless
Love is meaningless
Love is nothing
Love is love
With no happy endings

Tragic Breath

Tragedy walks to the beat of tone deaf tears...
falling waywardly onto shifting shores,
unsure of anything around him.
 
                             He wonders why it hurts to walk on something 
                                                   as soft as your cheeks;
 
and steps as if he might fall through
each bruise his unsteady feet conquer.
 
                          His breath burns.
 
                                                     His chest heaving under the weight
                                                        of epidermic ridicule he doesn't understand.
 
 
Why does love feel so much like hate? 
 
 
 
                                      Every footstep sends a longing coursing through her veins,
                                                      that makes every kiss bittersweet.
 
The fire keeps them honest I suppose,
reminding every lover the difference 
between joy and pain. 
 
 
Suffering together.
 
                           A blessing that no one seems to understand
                                           until death shudders down our throats.
 
In spite of it all, beauty stands still under the light that shines
down upon us all;
 
Showing the truth of why...
 
the breath of tragedy gives life to love.

Tragic Loss

Brakes squeal

Metal smashes

Glass shatters

Hearts breaking

Bodies shaking

Dreams destroyed

Pain rips through me

As I fly through the air

All things leave me

Eternal sleep is what I do

Weep many not

Brief sadness only

Nevermore is love

Not even missed

Forever more I salk

Spirit weeping

All alone I am now

Replaced by another I am

Ment nothing to many

Trash thrown out

No ones treasure

No one soulmate

One weeps in pain

Sitting on the ground crying

I wipe tears away

My presents felt

Smile on ones face appears

My spirit clings to this one

Lost and confused am I

What happen?

Why am I here?

Questions fill the air

Bandages cover him

A light shines but I ignore

Pain stricken is he

A name that is not mine

A man that is hurt

Memories all gone

Days go by

He still weeps

Still broken and crushed

I attempt to comfort

Healing of wounds

I can no longer

He feels but cannot see

Eyes shut peacfully

Terror attacks in dreams

A loss no one senses

A pain he wont express

Comfort he wont seek

External wounds heal Internally never to be fixed

A ring he grasps tightly each and every night

My picture underneath his pillow

A face that cannot be replaced

A mask to cover up his pain

A face to hide his sorrow No smile to brighten his face

Death of me haunts him daily

Scatter brained at the sound of my name

Tears flood his eyes with memories

I speak softly but he no hear

I hold tightly with every tear

His love truer than true

Deeper than most express for many

A bed half empty

Death is his only escape

Slowly I lift his spirit to be with mine

Our love continue even after death

Love stronger than life its self

Love the greatest feeling that we share

Two names share a stone

Two souls at rest

A Love So Tragic

(pt 1) 
We seem so indifferent
Like we just don't feel
We've got cuts on our hearts
That will never heal
Beautiful as a train wreck
In that confusing way
Stuck in reverse
Living on yesterdays
We fall into the darkness
And drown in the sea
No love has ever been so tragic
As the love between you and me

(pt 2) 
Your gorgeous as you always are
So beautiful no one could believe
That you could find such beauty
In someone like me
But we paint a pretty picture
We make it look so nice
With hearts hard as stone
And eyes carved from ice
Seperated only by distance
Our beauty envied by the stars
Our story so original
The tragedy of what we are

(pt 3) 
Pick me up and carry me
Through our sweet abyss
Shroud me in your fantasy
Its not like I'll be missed
Give me all your heart
Your perfect in my imperfections
Look in the mirror and see it
That beautiful reflection
So we'll dance our way to freedom
We'll dance until we die
Forever framed in beauty
The tragedy of you and I
