“do you believe in magic?”
“no. i believe in art.”
oh art, what a spectacular enigma you exist as.
you are described almost perfectly with the word. you are peculiar, and mind boggling, and at the very least, astonishingly overwhelming.
it captivates me when i see you raw. it enthralls me when i see you ripe. although who is to say when you are raw or ripe? after all, you are a refined eternity, with a beginning but no end.
you are breathtaking, and the only thing surreal and real at once. you are a sour ripeness, a dark morning, an empty sun, and a neverlasting fire.
your existence is impossible to comprehend and you are inexplicable.
you are, in the truest sense, art.
so no, i do not believe in magic, but i do believe in moulding persons unmouldable. changing people unchangeable. making a difference in this sour indifferent world; engraving your initials with your bare hands on this hard, cold earth.
And for now, that somehow seems to be enough.
