R.I.P. Amy, you brought nothing but joy.

Fuck the Critics and Critiques

Never as pretty as inked-on skin
nor thin as scars the razors cut.
Never as sweet as Daddy said;
never good enough.

Never quite grasped the fuss they made,
praising one moment, condemning the next.
Couldn't balance that tightrope called Fame;
I could barely be Myself.

But when I was high, I felt the starlight
that everyone said I emitted on stage.
Now they'll rewrite me however they want to;
I'm past what they put on the page.

  i guess it wasnt that surprising, but as someone once said about kurt cobain 'he let the music down'. when it was supposed to be the other way around. i dont know if it applies to amy though. the current culture and technology makes mediocrity a commodity and true talent common as houseflies, and we might end up stunted in our musical appreciation (if not, lets give it time). and we will reminisce how the good ones go leaving a young beautiful corpse, and how we wish the new ones would just die or quickly vanish into obscurity until we forget them, waiting for the next novelty to entertain us.

  This is such a fitting tribute. I feel the same as you about her drug use. It's got to be so much harder being being famous, whether you want the fame or not, than the dickheads who stigmatise her for her drug use realise. I'm really happy that she didn't have any illegal drugs in her system when she died because I hated how all of the papers had it all figured out before she was even cold. They're the ones who tore her down in life, spattering her pain across The Mirror and The Sun, and they're still making money off of her in death. The media is the worst bully of all because it builds you up to tear you down, especially here in Britain. She's still the greatest singer of her generation, and you can't take that away from her.

I like that you take time to craft your poetry. Thanks for that, Amy

  I think you've come pretty damned close to voicing how Amy must have felt. Nicely done....

  everyone *knew* this was going to happen. all the reporters and journalists and fellow stars and half arsed fans...

those of us who really adored her were on her side hoping it wouldnt... hoping she'd find a way of getting back on that tightrope you mention.. those of us who adored her are gutted.

i dont know if youre on facebook but everyone on facebook is inventing groups they think are clever and deminishing everything amy was to a joke and it makes me so cross... i dont understand why people have to do that..

i gotta say though... the 27 club... perfect! [except i'd rather she were alive and still blessing us with her incredible music]

ramble ramble.
youre on the money with this one doll... a more fitting tribute could not be found

  this is such a stirring tribute to really put us inside her psyche...

fame is so difficult to keep up with...

and the drugs making her feel the starlight...yes, for some...the only way to cope.

nice write, Runes...
