Stardom

TheDeckerEdgeMatt Decker

A world so diff'rent,

A land so distant,

A kingdom divided --

Yet somehow united.

No flash of renown,

Terrestrial town,

Found to catch

Or match

The lore or yore

Of your

Celestial crown.

Fans of fame

Fan the flame,

Stand in stands,

Cheer the game

And chase they

Who claim acclaim --

But in view of you,

It's just not the same.

Like golden glitter

And glamor,

I behold then wither

And stammer --

Effervescent luminescence

Transcends men's ken

And grammar

And all for which

They clamor.

In the end,

After the wind

Lie the jewels

Of men

Who ruled --

Celebs do ebb,

Scenes on screens

Fade to black

Just like that --

None can compare

To the rarefied air

Of your stellar lair

Way up there

Or the luster

Of your cluster --

I can only muster

This amazed gaze

And stare.
