Dark Shadows

Should have known all along
the joke was on me
meant to bring me to my knees
humbled & uprooted for burial at sea

But I would not go quietly to an early grave
spent all the money I could not save
to ensure solid ground remains underfoot
bringing me back to reality
and the certainty of denial
of my rise to fame
lost to the shadows of history
