Crystal Brook

Crystal Brooke.

Crystal Brooke was beautiful
She smiled like the morning sun
With eyes of blue, and velvet hair
And such a sense of fun
Everyone did love her so
This sweet unselfish girl
Just one look into here beauty
Could set men’s hearts a whirl.

She dreamed that one day she would be
A star of great repute
And that she had a lot of talent
There was none who would refute
One day a mogul passing by
Did hear this lady sing
He made of her a singing star
And fame to her did bring.

At first this life was wonderful
Oh, she had everything
And millions paid out all their doe
Just to hear the lady sing
Then as her fame spread far and wide
Her ego it did grow
And then the booze and drugs took hold
And took away her glow.

Her life became quite miserable
Her manner became quite sour
All true beauty faded then
As she lost all her power
Then one day she could take no more
And so she took her life
Living in a goldfish bowl
Had caused her too much strife.

    Hi Peter, at last, a safe harbour. Is it just me my friend or is there more despondency here than anything else. Is there some prize for who can tell the sadest tail? Once again Peter, you tell it as it is without any dramas. Be careful what you wish for. Fame and fortune are not what they are set out to be, there are so mant pitfalls. As always Peter, you put down your thoughts so easily and they just sing off the page. I enjoyed this, sorry about the bit at the start. Your Friend always..MIKE.

    Hi Michael, really my friend I never know what I write or how I write, one sentence comes to me, and I follow it from there. Because it comes to me I share it, although sometimes I know it doesn't always agree with others views. Yet everything is written with the utmost sincerity. I thank you for your comments, they truly inspire me to write more, I appreciate this....peter
