young forever

names and photographs engraved in history books,
the cheers drown out the roar of time,
tears remain frozen on my face,
dare i surround myself in this cloak of light,
the clocks stop,
standing on the stage, reaching out for the fans –
screams of my name bring me to my knees –
an emptiness will swallow me whole tomorrow,
yesterday i collapsed from exhaustion,
today, i wish to be young forever.
