Looking for magic

We all do it,  search for the magic
That deep thing so special you cannot ignore
Hunting it down
By day and night
Over days and years, to the horizon
Looking beyond the line you see
Never close
Next to them
Searching so hard for the magical second
When that thing will just happen
Open a door
Brave new world
All you need to do is go through it
Will you? As your heart pounds fearful
New horizon now
Search to start again
You never looked under your nose
Wasted so long looking at the distance
Wondering waiting
When you could’ve been going towards it
Or something better all along
Turning back to where you came
The roads were
Always there
You just chose to ignore the tracks
That could be taken till you needed to
Look now
Not ahead
At your feet,  close up, see what’s there
Look at every road and choose the one
Right for you
Right for now
Travel as and when you want to
But give yourself that much
You deserve it.

I have written since I can remember. First inspired by the wonderful stories of Roald Dahl, the Brothers Grimm etc. I adore myths and magic of all sorts, though I read so many genres it's impossible to classify it all!! Some of my poetry is truth with a healthy (or unhealthy depending on your view!),dose of magic and fiction and others are pure fiction. I'll leave you to decide for yourself which those are! Please stop by and enjoy and glad to make your acquaintance. Feel free to leave a comment 🙂
