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 #luis 2017

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