You're not magic anymore.
I watched the coin you tired to banish; It never left your hand.
Now you look different than before.

You dumped the rabbit from your hat to the floor,
and you stood there, like your methology was so very grand.
You're not magic anymore.

Your spades I once shuffled; Your queens I adored.
But your hearts are all flat and your suits will disband.
Now you look different than before.

I broke it. Splintered it louder than anything I'd ever swore.
Your wand brought nothing to your stand.
You're not magic anymore.

Your incantations lack conviction, despite whatever glamour.
I see this comprehension slow that sleight of hand.
Now you look different than before.

Those cheers on false pretenses are no longer yours.
The footlights dim; The doves die and
you're not magic anymore.
Now you look different than before.
"We need to figure out whose skeleton this is!"
"Then I guess we better start looking for a boneless person."

I find this to be a very lovely poem, I love the sense of disenchantment in the words as if someone has just opened their eyes to see things "clearly" for the first time.
