Poem -

Where everyone pretends to be a star

where everyone
Pretends to be a star.
+++++++++++++

You tend to
Keep those
Sad
Eyes
Hidden behind a
Careless masks
Composure..

Smiling
Like
A lonely
Phantom!

Present Now,
But
Fleeting.)

Yet A Life
Of
Goodbye's
won't bring one
Closure.

(nor save them
from The Devils
They'll
be meeting. )

My HeaRt
is
a sHiT stained
GuTTer littered
with
Everyone's Mental
TraSh.

At
TimeS it
ShyLy
StuTTeRs.

(at times
IronicaLLy
LaUgHs.)

and I 
suppose this
means

We were for
Eachother!!

(too bad Heaven's
FaLLouT brought
Hells
AfTeRmaTh.)

×

You must
keep silent
about
ThE DeAd.

and
EmBrAcE
The
LiVinG for
What
tHeY aRe.

This AbSuRd
MoViE playing
iN
OuR hEAds!

( where everyone
Pretends to be a StaR.)

Hey J..I think some people want more than their 15  minutes of fame, even if it means being a phony....I guess I would rather be a Nobody then and live a genuine life...lol  Lots to consider in your words.  Profound messages.  xo ;)

TY!

you are spot on in your assessment Cherie,
though I always like to say my work is multi-interpretable.
you actually penetrated the intent of my thought
with your comment.

and i like that you said you would rather be a nobody
and live a genuine life rather than be a phony.
SAME here.

if truth were the popular thing you'd be a household
name.

you and T both.

(though we seem to keep missing one another
unfortunately. by no fault of either of us. it's just
how the universe plays dice at times.)
