The illusory nature of fame is so well-captured here. You've reminded me of a quote by the late Janis Joplin, who said after a rock concert: "I've just made love to twenty thousand people, and I'm lonely as hell inside." Spot on for accuracy.
06/07/11 sad, and so true, that fame brings sorrow. Great writing!
This is a lovely poem with a great message. I especially like the last verses.
Congratulations, Ben!
Whoa! What a masterful portrayal of the "common" life of a celebrity. People revere them as gods and goddesses when in reality, they are probably worse off emotionally and spiritually than many of their worshippers. Marvelous entry! Big congrats on your win!
