Paid To Stay Faked

Poem By Lawrence S. Pertillar

Paid to stay faked,
For celebrity sake and adulation saved...
Can addict and will kill,
An innocence once had and just for thrills.
With a teasing taste to satisfy the brain.
And one getting a slight whiff of it,
Sniffs and succumbs to the numbing done...
To never again be the same to those 'stung'.

And the ones who feed to keep this existence,
Can not unleash the traps to easily release
To escape to return back as simple as that.
With a belief a name with acclaimed fame achieved,
Will allow a freedom to visit again a wished reality.
Since a soul once sold spends a lifetime in regret,
Believing an acceptance of fame leaves peace and rest...
Anytime one wishes it and needing this to get.

Paid to stay faked,
For celebrity sake and adulation saved...
Can addict and will kill,
An innocence once had and just for thrills.
Until that craving ends a taste that fades,
To leave alone one empty remembering the days...
When a wish for notoriety and fame to achieve,
Was not a contract to please others wanting blood to see.

'You are paid to stay faked.
That's how you are compensated.
Paid to stay faked.
In someone else's hands holding your fate.
You are paid to stay faked,
Anytime they demand it and at anytime to get.
You are paid to stay faked.
And that's the bottomline of it.'
