The spotlight found you
Wings outstretched
Perched on the edge
Of that final fall.

You were looking down
A momentary pause
Reflecting on a life led
In front of cameras

You see yourself as you truly are
A once-was, now has-been
On a slow dive
To rock bottom

The light loses interest
Bored by your inaction
Although you have an audience
The ones who lie beneath, waiting

Their voices clamour, urging you on
Demanding a performance
You couldn’t give in life
… and you jump.
