Number one fan

Number one fan

A Poem by MattWheatus
"

Quirky look into the mind of a stalker. Not to be taken seriously!

"

I watch you from the distance standing in a crowd

In moments I’ll hear your lullabies called to me aloud

 

Ticket bought, excitement building number one fan

Followed by millions but only I understand

 

Without ever meeting you’ve stepped into my soul

You’ll know it soon too, we’ll connect I just know

 

As you sing out to the crowd I know you’re singling me out

Your muse, your critic, your follower devout

 

Our connection so strong, heart beats like Morse code

Two like minds, soon we’ll get the time I’m owed

 

I trace you in the shadows after your set

Following your game, not tripping the traps you’ve set

 

Flashbulbs, security, minders, follow the comet you are

I know you are just playing with me, teasing from afar

 

I need to save you from this divide to make it real

When they’re all gone, perhaps I will…

Normally when reading a poem--on this site in particular--I cringe at how people attmept to rhyme. Fortunately in your case I did just the opposite, it was absolutely refreshing. They way it flows, and the slight creepiness that seems to ooze from it only make it more believable. Fantastic read.

I love it! I love the creepy feeling you get when you described the person being a little too obsessive, fantastic job.

Yes, I've been in that position of worship from afar...fortunately, I saw sense eventually, but it took something big to make me change. You've written very well from the point of someone in this paradise-hell.

This is my favorite! The melody is a bit dark and menacing. I like that!

Very interesting take on the fan psychology. The flow of this poem was great for a newcomer:) Keep up the great work

Very creative spin on an obssessed fan I thought.. the pyschology of tunnel vision and a fan believing this artist has touched them in such a way that they forget the artist is playing for a dream and audience.. start to fantasize this other is a match possibly in the ending? Myself I have several muses.. I do not believe in reading the full Bios of an artist though I've read a little.. as it is the music and lyrics I am in love with!

The artists today do not all write their own music.. therefore for me there's no way to know if it is an underwriter's work or the artist themselves.. the artist is a performer.. their jobs are to get us hooked.. so many friends I have had who had these feelings in youth I could not even tell you.. I did not dream such.. though if I were to meet a high muse I can not say I would not blush or be extremely upbeat to come across someone who has maybe fed me so many levels of inspiration.. I in all honesty would probably faint.. lol.. this was I thought a brilliant insight from the portrait of a really CRAZED fan.. caught up in fantasy! You can just imagine how these things must terrify celebrities .. Great job!
