Octavia dear
Why would you not hear
You listened not, to the words that I gave
You acted with pride
But from me, you can't hide
To your feelings and heart I do slave

With attention, drowned
And arrogance, crowned
All your loved ones, you let slip away
But I went along
Just writing this song
Hoping you'd revert, some day

Your new "friends" are hollow
In your wealth they do  wallow
Without items, their care for you goes
You'll realise to late
Thus meet a harsh fate
But in this moment, only arrogance grows

Now you squander your skill
At the word of their will
Why can't you see, it is you who's controlled?
Your songs have grown tired
No new words are inspired
You're given up, like merchandise, sold

You're then asked to leave
Wipe you're eyes on your sleeve
You accept it, no whimper or hark
You retreat to your lair
No crying or prayer
And you mourn the last day, 'till it's dark

Your "friends" are all gone
Without them you're one
"What's here? There's none left to do"
They left without warning
And were gone by the morning;
The lone author who writes this, is you

We flee our foul life
Of darkness and strife
Go to lands, as cold as our heart
But nothing will heal
This wound that wont seal
No running, there is no new start

Now it's dark and it's cold
As our misery holds
None greet, and none say "hello"
So we sit here and think
As our happiness sinks
On my own, just me and my Cello

This is a truly beautiful and poignant poem! I really love the deep introspection and portrayal of the perils of fame.
