As gossips stare a colorless soul is bared

Never learned to share, never much cared

Such a pity, such a pain being so vain

Flawed behavior tarnishes transformation

  Time to shelve the ego for hibernation



This week the event is to Write a story or poem of 5 Lines or Less using the word vain. Please drop by and join the fun at Patricia’s Place

    This is just too beautiful, and horrendously close to reality, at the same time….

    This so prompted thoughts of Carly Simons line “You’re so vain, you probably thin this song is about you …” ^^ Excellent!

    Yes I’m vain.
    I look into my mirror and see me.
    The way I think I am.
    You look at me from the outside,
    I pray to God you see my beauty shining from within.

    A colorless soul…vain. As they say, (whoever they are) you hit the nail on the head. Thanks for linking to In Other Words.

    Yes, I thought of Carly Simon (whom I love) when I saw Patricia’s prompt for us. This poem fits right in. Hugs.

    Sounds rather like the psyche of reality TV stars: famous for being famous.

    I wonder why your comments went to my spam box.

      I have had this happen too. Not only on WP but other emails that I regularly receive end up in spam. Oh well.
