Seen Through
Your smoke and Mirrors
could never fool me
you thought me blinded
by prettily spoken promises
Translucent Lies ~ seen through!...

Smoke And Mirrors
The more we think we know,
  the more deceived we truly become

Accumulating knowledge
 —the deception of time

Love in Smoke and Mirrors
Who am I , nightmare of dreamers, lover of sweet lies, 
whisperer of fears, collecter of tears, Mr. Smoke and 
Mirrors, she said, I smiled and told her another beautiful 
lie...

Smoke And Mirrors
Smoke and mirrors
Fill my lungs
The smoke seeps 
I gasp for air
The mirrors mutilate
Cutting my inside
But you were all I had to breathe
And you were all smoke and mirrors

be my medicine man
be my medicine man
use your smoke and mirrors
to make me whole

be my medicine man
cure me with your potions
play your roll

be my medicine man
heal me with your hands
save my soul

be my medicine man
exorcise my demons
let me lose control

beatle
This is not really me
Merely smoke and mirrors
Plying a day job
That pays the bills
The me
I see
Dissected into ribbons cleverly disregarded
Like a modern day beetle
Imagining all the people
Who have heard the news today and chosen to stay
Sometimes the clothes do not fit the father

Something wicked
Something wicked
Come this way
Numbing me
From all the pain
Take a hit
Swollow hard
Go blind
Look away
No more stress
Something wicked
Wash me clean
See nothing
But beauty
Reality
Is nothing
But a dream
Smoke and mirrors
Where is the truth
It's no longer here
Because something wicked 
Walks my way...

Smoke And Mirrors
Smoke and mirrors man the barricade 
  Between us with tricks of the dusk drizzled light; 
And formulates hold to the moments purloined, 
  Hold to the moments, hold good and tight. 
For distance is nothing but veils of smoke, 
  Mirrored, refracted a crafted delusion; 
And love such as ours compose distance a dream, 
  Distance a dream, nothing more than illusion...

The Illusionist
He stands there
looks you straight
in the eye
And begins to tell
you the truth when
you know it’s a lie

He has become
confident in his own
manipulation tactics
An illusionist using
smoke and mirrors as
a distraction

What he has not come
to realize in his
life of delusion 
Is the audience is
not fooled by his
tricks of illusion

Written by Erin
Soares-Anselmi

Magician
my heart bleeds before you
you do not see or choose to overlook
oblivious to my wounds

how can you be so blind?
how can you be so detached?
how could I have been such a fool?

smoke and mirrors
sleight of hand, a magician
twisting my fate

I stumble out of the darkness of this relationship
and into the blinding light of day
the fog clearing from my mind, perspicacious once again...

The Traveller

Atomise the pressure...

...all is not what it seems...

reoccurring windswept...

challenge the force free...

Free spirits come full circle
Free spirits will endure...

Smoke and mirrors
Smoke and mirrors

The sceptics yet reveal...

Punctuated reason...

Lessons well learned...

Surreal the undecided...

The composite of sure...

Premature attraction...

...unmasked the decline...

The traveller windswept...
has learned the sound of time......

Power Shifts
Look at how the power the Power Shifts
It's all smoke and mirrors
And every hour here
I learn to value the precious seconds


Well the centerpiece of my topic is enterprize
Please don't enter the gates of simple minds
And the middle might---___Fall out and stiil the light
Well I guess I don't know nothing about Power shifts then//////////
Well we'll see in the Spring when the flowers are blooming\\\\\\\\\\

reflected guidence
somewhere between the sephira i beg of thee
bleed my soul and take my spirit eternally 
i question no motive 
of mans hatred nature
and place no blame of that which is smoke and mirrors
oh how i wish i could bring you the horizon
read these words and feel the pain
yet think of comfort 
and its bittersweet rain
forever am i the broken wings 
guidance i offer
an outstretched hand
but i lay in the shadows 
so find my fingertips 
and embrace that which i have reflected upon you

There Is Only Love
Once so judgmental
Explosive
So worried about 
Your politics
Your sexuality
You wear a red hat
Do you agree with me?
No?
Then I hate you
An eye for an eye
A tooth for a tooth
Hang 'em high
On the town square

Time passes
Hearts soften
It was all smoke and mirrors
The driving force of hate
Is a constant struggle
And destroys everything in its path
Why can't we see
Love is easy
It heals
And is for everyone
If we accept it
For in the end
There is only love

TELL

Alternative worldview as I sit on my throne, 
trolleys in the car park only purpose to exist. 
Tell me what is it like to be a pond? 
See a mirror in your smooth serene exterior, 
are you reeling inside under the surface like me? 
Danger of drying up in summer stagnant stinking water. 
Frozen solid two seasons later hard as stone. 
Are you me or am I you?
Fake personality, make believe, make up to hide 
what it’s all about. Smoke and mirrors conquer naked truth, any day.
