THE FALLEN STAR

He considered the others dim wits
At best he thought of them as lazy
Was he not a celebrity of many hits

On stage they screamed his name
The frenzy was ecstatically craved
He was hooked on to their worship

He walked the slippery path of drugs
A frequent guest of the rehab center
He was eventually staring at insanity

He slit his wrist with a sharp razor
His life webbed away with regrets
The papers wrote the king is dead

A sad write. So true...man sees celebrity, even as a person jumps from a cliff. Then they crown him king.
