Everybody sees you
But do they know just who you are
Their one wish is just to please you
A mesmerizing, distant star

You float above the fawning masses
Who bathe in your brilliant light
But like a comet that quickly passes
All too soon youíre gone from sight

It matters not to you the darkness
That consumed those whom you left
The broken hearts, the bitter starkness
or the dignity of souls bereft

All that matters is the ardor
That you receive from everyone
But their love is only fodder
To feed your lust until youíre done

Then you discard them like the dust
Which is swept by solar winds
Stripped them of their naÔve trust
For on their heart they canít depend

But your star has lost its shimmer
It may never shine as bright
Eclipsed by prideís false glimmer
Youíve fallen victim and from sight

For your heart has now been broken
By a star you sought to please
The stark bitterness unspoken
Your soul bereft upon its knees

A cosmic tragedy has ended
And Karma has left little doubt
Your star no longer is suspended
The light that was love has gone out

Bellisimo!! You obviously have passion with every word that you write. My favorite part of this poem are the words:

"You float above the fawning masses Who bathe in your brilliant light
But like a comet that quickly passes
All too soon youíre gone from sight. " You are sending a powerful message with so many spices!

There are many people in life who might not be genuine, or they lose their way as they get caught up with the attention, fame, or the "ardor" without loving others in a genuine way. Unfortunately, some people do not care about who they have hurt along the way.

This is a powerful message, and I will be tracking your work. I admire your writing style. Please stop by my den again sometime!

This truly rocks, it's profound and cuts to the chase of such people's character. Beautiful baby you are holding in your bio picture.

One of your best, Anthony.
Yes, it is a shame that some feel themselves worthy of being
worshipped. We know the scriptures relating to this, do we not?
I won't even try to make a 'guess' at who you are referring to here,
but your poem makes some strong points, whoever it is directed at.
Keep up the fine work.

The tragedy of a falling star - masterly penned. Stars are people with a larger-than-life personality belonging to them and others. Whilst the image can be splendid, the real person's soul is dying behind a wall of glamour. Franz
