FAME AT THE EDGE
by kiley

Hearing the train in the distance
A faded whistle grew louder
Carrying the crowd
Into a strange excitement

Their most famous citizen
Was approaching their town
His town not too long ago

He featured in the soda shop
Playing pranks in the park
Most of all owning the stage
In the town hall auditorium

Amateur productions
And pounding hearts

The train let off steam
At the station
The engine in full stop

He had arrived
His last return

Twenty-four
An over flowing talent
Pure genius
Fame breaking at the edge
Too young

Gone – he may be
For some – though
He lives
FOREVER
