Catapulted into frenzy!
Life snatched out of helpless hands,
Time ephemeral as shifting sands.
Flashlights and fickle fame,
I miss when I was a nobody
And life wasn’t as gaudy.
When I had four four AM friends
Instead of fevered, frantic fandom.
Solitude stubbornly evades me
What’s the world but one giant CCTV ?
Every word and deed, weighed beyond rational need;
The critics’ gleeful feed, just to watch me bleed !
Waiting like hawks to dent my image
Clawing away until I’m bent out of shape;
To force me to drown,
So they can usurp my crown !
Shielded and sure, that was the promise :
Flawed ramifications of a fallacious premise.
