[Poetry] The Rockstar

The price I paid for this life I live
For the fame and the fans screaming my name
Is a shadow beside me no one can see
That whispers of terror and never sleeps
Because the price I paid for the star-studded days
Is to walk with darkness for now and always.

Written for November Notes and inspired by particular lyrics in the prompt songs:

Day 2 – Details In The Fabric by Jason Mraz
Hang on
Help is on the way
And stay strong
I’m doing everything

Day 3 – The Other Side of Paradise by Glass Animals
When I was young and stupid my love
Left to be a rock and roll star
He told me please don’t worry
Wise little smile that spoke so safely

    1. Er…when you say the two poems that follow, do you mean the lyrics of the individual songs? Because if so, I take no credit for those words. I thought I would highlight the stanzas in the two prompt songs that inspired my poem at the top ^_^
