Birth Of A Star

Birth Of A Star short poem

Well and here I am in New York City
Looking like I just stepped out of Vogue
And the confidence I display screams GQ
In these and those studio photos and
Many high fashion magazines then it’s off
To Hollywood to try my luck on the silver
Screen…well I’ve never been so tired, I’ve
Never felt so good, sitting in the back of this
Long black Limousine, seeing my name in
Lights and hearing my name shouted out by
God knows how many people and it sounds
Like a symphony to me…well I love it, I love it
I’m just afraid I’ll wake up any minute now
And none of it would’ve been true, I guess
When success comes that fast to small town
People like me it’s natural to feel that way, I
Guess I should just relax and enjoy it come
What may as I travel down this ole Yellow
Brick road with all my heart ‘cuz after all
How can you hide a fire in the dark or the
Birth of a Star!

Dear pole star, I dedicate this to you, Because in my mind lies a question, why do you not twinkle like other stars do? Do you like to be there in the sky all alone? Do you want to rest,

Random Birth short poem

A unique, irreverent intruder: in my dying dreams, of a domain beyond the gifts. The corridor was full of specters in boiling air. The DNA will not cover the naked strands of desires. Put out to sea, my boat in
