Bewitched by the heady concoction of glamour, fame and money
the lure of filmdom attracts aspiring youngsters.
Sparkling glitterati wrap their aspirations with allure of the stars.
Masquerades, veil the predatory instincts of the powerful men
often, eclipse the rise of budding talent into oblivion,
their heart burdened by the remnants of crumpled promises and fractured dreams.

Ruling the glamour industry
much sought after face
sashaying across the ramp
basking in all the adulation
stardom felt eternal.
Spotlight shifts focus
today, my face is a mere poster on the wall with graffiti.
Forgotten, as tides of time change.
I try to chase the elusive limelight,
only to realize,
fame is like a sparkler
burning till the light fades
