Rio's Attic: Celebrating the Life and Times of a Dearly Missed River Phoenix

What River might say:

Not The Hollywood Star

By Angie Battenbough,
Lincoln, United Kingdom

Don't look at my face
Please look at my heart
This is River Phoenix,
Not the Hollywood star.

I feel so invisible
And yet so exposed
People are looking
I don't know where to go.

I am trying to help
But are people listening
With this terrible veil
Of Hollywood glistening?

It's not me up there,
It's not me on that poster
They throw me around
I'm on a rollercoaster.

There is a camera
That follows me everywhere
I'm left wondering why
Girls stop and stare.

Don't look at my face
Please look at my heart.
This is River Phoenix,
Not the Hollywood star.
