Poetry: Limelight

devour once the intimate

emotions in the soul of hearts

and under cycles of their love

destroy the hands that feed the arts

and when the cheers degrade to cries

the lofty praises rendered ash

suffocate the crimson tides

and all at once assume command

alas—it is a dream defied

this cold controlled

limelight demand
