has been..

Hits once came strong
Another success story started
Shooting confidence sky high

Besmirched by a mistake
Easily forgotten became fame
Eclipsed by newer talents
Now in shadows unnoticed

Poetry & writing to me are to me, a breath of fresh air in a life that is sometimes covered by the smoke of sorrow or self doubt. They also become the sweets I share to celebrate when life offers me a reason to. But most of all, they are to me, my life. For each word I write is a piece of my heart, a thought that just had to find its way into the world.

  1. Most stars who are in the public glare for too long, do end up this way, when fame gets into them!! They are also so susceptible to being defamed and eclipsed by other rising stars!! A sad story well told Acrostically Leo!!

  2. I see a lot many stars that have come & gone too, Elizabeth. It reminded me of that, the "has-been" phrase. glad that you liked my acrostic. Cheers..! πŸ™‚
