Golden Boy

For years I worshipped you from afar

Never knowing who you are

A golden sculpture come to life 

With eyes like an aqueous paradise 

Of stillest blue 

Such shallow pools 

 That never gazed into mine 

Never even cared to look twice 

Golden boy, more golden still in name 

Wearing your favour and your fame 

Like tailored suits 

In popular hues 

Golden boy with heart of gold 

But a world so polished, prim and cold 

Light years from mine 

And my bohemian life 

And so the golden boy 

Stays in my silver past 

And so I move on at last 

To deeper joys.
