Man of Mystery

themagicman

Our own Flaming Glamfingers, Lorrin, found this alluring and unusual photo of Adam, and it so touched her that she was inspired her to write the below poem. I do have to say I’ve never seen this photo before, and it captures Adam in a whole new light. So without further ado, here is Lorrin’s poem, printed here with permission:

Enigma

Who are you, enigmatic man of endless mystery,
Hiding behind a curtain of dark and light
Showing only just-so-much of your beautiful face,
Waiting in quiet reverie to reveal the whole effect
Of your newest, fairest face?

First we see the painted eye, how could we not,
Each lash picked out in sea-green strands
Set against the whole, a glittering slash of
Sparkling black, the entire eye a Venetian Mask
A testament to the painter’s art.

Then our eyes are drawn to view the other side
Of the fair, mysterious living mask of your own creation,
And we cannot help but see the loving, piercing glance
In your azure eye, deeply shaded in its own mystery
By the gathering shadows of your hiding place.

Next we see the curving lines of your enigmatic smile
Causing us to wonder what you are seeing that is so
Fascinating just beyond our view, and what you could be
Thinking as you look out from your hidden refuge,
Half in shadow, half in light?

If we could only know the wellspring of your heart
From which all the mysteries and ever-changing faces
Of your life find their start; we could begin to part the
Veils that conceal your mind from ours, and really hold
Within our deepest selves, the very thing that makes you
Who you are, man of darkness and of light

Thank you Lorrin, for this beautiful photo and equally beautiful poem!

In interviews Adam has always been open with his life and his goals, and yet he exudes this undeniable air of mystery. How do you think this is possible? Do you, too, see an enigma in Adam? If so, in what way?

You are so right about the Venetian mask – I think I was drawn to it for that reason – love that romantic, mysterious, dramatic and theatrical look! It certainly suits our Adam, non? And I know that you too love that style as it is what you have illustrating your Twitter page. Take care of yourself!

          Hugs,

  2. Thank you, Lorrin for the wonderful picture of Adam and beautiful BEAUTIFUL poem!!!!
    Lorrin, BRAVO!!!!
    Yes, I agree Adam IS Enigma… He was asked once on one of the interview: Tell us what your fans do not know about you? He laughed and said: I think they know everything… No, I don’t think so….
    I think there is a lot more we will know about him in future… And I think even Adam himself doesn’t know that he IS ENIGMA…
    Love you, Adam!

  3. cheryl norman says:

    LORRIN, I did see this pic before. Do not remember where, but, forgot to say what I was thinking about your description of Adam. Just so true. You have captured the man, and made him even more mysterious with your description. A true man of mystery and love. So well done! Love you, my dear friend!

    Lorrin, your lovely poem captures what is in all of our hearts as we look at this beautiful young man and hear his simply other-worldly voice. Your words conveyed so much of what I feel each time I have thought of Adam since early this year–and yet could not express as eloquently as you. There IS something elusive in Adam’s persona–and yet so intimate in all that he shares, with such honesty. In a recent interview, a reporter was asking him “How do you explain this extraordinary passion and love from your fans–after all, you are just a person.” Adam attempted to answer with some kind of articulate response–but just as he started to speak, he broke down with laughter—not in a mocking way. He was just trying to explain something that can’t be understood by him.He went on to say how much he appreciates all of the love and loyalty coming his way because he wants to have his fan base listen and enjoy his singing for many years to come. Thank you for your beautiful poem. All I can manage to add are these words from the British poet, John Keats. “A thing of beauty is a joy forever.” Lorraine

    • Elizabeth says:

      Yes, I remember that moment. I thought it was such an honest response and I was very impressed by the humility it showed.

  5. Lorraine, you are right, in spite of Adam’s openness he has an ‘elusive persona’. Lorrin, dear, you have again outdone yourself, such wonderful expressive picturesque words!

    In keeping with his mystery is the fact that though two other top Idols’ music has been heard and much written about their albums, Adam’s first non Idol music is still shrouded in mystery… we know nothing! I asked my son today and he says that if a new entertainer’s work is not assured rapid success there is more likelihood of letting it out in dribs and drabs, and if there is a strong sense of success, as is with Adam, there is just no need, and that in itself builds up a frenzy of want. In fact, Adam has been graced with the Nov 24 release date rather than a week earlier or later, and that is the big American Thanksgiving shopping weekend!!

    Re. the photo, I think I have one in my collection of the same ‘eyewear’ but it is not the same photo.

  6. Lorrin, your words are magical and beautiful. If ADAM would read this, I believe his eyes would well with tears because you captured his mystery that he loves.

    ADAM’s photo is beyond beautiful. I couldn’t stop looking at his lips!!!!
    Oh to get lost in them!

    He can look like a devilish boy to a sexy sexy man and everything in-between.
    I just love everything about him. Thanks so much for sharing!

  7. ellen #447 says:

    Lorrin, You make me so proud to be a member of the Glambs! Your poetry is beautiful. Adam is a man of mystery and I bet he would love to read this , since he writes poetry himself. If only this could be sent to him…. thankyou

    • GLAMB#474 kimber says:

      Hello Ellen! I agree that this poem should be sent to ADAM. A GLAMB leader should start making some phone calls. If I was as resourceful as the others, I would take it upon myself to do this. This is the moment, that we need to come together, to contact ADAM. To me, everything happens for a reason. There have been posts where I will shout out to ADAM to respond. Some say he reads our posts and some say he doesn’t, we’ll see won’t we. This has been the best topic of discussion, I could write forever! But I just wanted to let someone know that this is the time for everyone to come together and help to contact ADAM’s manager or ADAM himself that he should know this, or should this unbelieveable poem and the comments made, be known to only us?.

  8. GLAMB#474 kimber says:

    Lorrin, what a truly remarkable and gifted writer you are. I got goosebumps. This is an exquisite image of our wonderous ADAM. Your poem Enigma is mind-blowing. I am going to have to read it over and over just like an ADAM video. I see this mysteriousness about him,but I had an epiphany of ADAM today as I was listening to his THE PRAYER. In ? of the day, my ? was to ADAM, did you find true love? For me, for ADAM, this man is no ordinary man, the only true love for him is his song. His voice, his music, his vocals,his “goods”. I have never had such visions of another human being as I did today. It was not what he was singing or how he was singing, but you could really feel deep down how much this man loved to just sing. This is what he knows and feels in his heart as if he knew nothing else. The total attraction to him is this. I feel the magic inside this man, as every one of us. ADAM is so special and unique, that only you, jeanette, me, all of us, can see what the rest of the world cannot. So with each person, coming into the light, that is seen inside of ADAM, is what will bring people together. Just look at us! Here we are together, for ADAM, because of the special light inside of each of one of us. I know it has been said before, that each one of us has a gift, and as I write to others and getting to know each one of you, I will state “This is your gift…”. There is a reason for all of this, and his name is ADAM. Isn’t that funny, first man of God. Bringing women(mostly), of all ages, together, to celebrate ADAM! What an extraordinary man he is!!!!!!! I am aware that what I just wrote,has been said over and over, but these are my words, for ADAM. Thank you Lorrin and Jeanette. this has been an exciting time in my life, I mean it!!! I have never been so happy in my life and how perfectly connected I am feeling right now to each and every one of you. Some may be surprised at how excited I get, but this is why. ADAM, first man of God, bringing not just women, but everyone, together.

    • kweenjeane says:

      I was with you in every word you wrote. I cannot understand or believe how Adam has affected me, and I feel almost foolish saying this, but he makes me want to be a better person. I too feel this is one of the most exciting times in my life. There definitely is a light within and without Adam. I often think that Adam is a revolution happening – his sweetness, honesty, depth, intelligence and every other spectacular quality offer inspiration. And I swear…. I hope that simply by being who he is helps open peoples’ minds and hearts to Gay people. The ADAMSTORM!!!

  9. Dianne Hill says:

    Lorrin, that is so beautiful, you have captured the very essence of Adam. I too have seen that picture somewhere before and I was mesmerised by it, by him.

    When I read your poem it sent shivers down my spine and tears welled in my eyes. Just beautiful. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

    Dianne. Love, Peace and light forever.

  10. Am I the only one who thinks that’s just a teensy bit creepy? I mean like Colleen Rose? Is it really a mad mad world?

    • Randy,
      Looks like you ARE the only one…

    • Yep your are the only one.

    • Dianne Hill says:

      Randy you are definitely the only one, there will never, ever be anything creepy about Adam. He is alluring and magical – as Lorrin says, an Enigma.

      • AdamAddict says:

        LOL! Sorry Randy but sorry to tell you, yup,you are alone in this one! 😛 I f I saw that guy take a peek at me like that,instead of screaming and running away, I will scream and chase him! LOL!

  11. irish1139 says:

    I see Adam as many personalities. Sometimes I think he is channeling other people. Unless you listen to him carefully when he speaks, you won’t pick up the differences in his speech, tics or nuances. The changes are so subtle. I don’t think Adam is even conscious of it. His young boy personality is his only truth. When he is playing the adult, there is still a young boy racing around in his brain and spirit trying to get out.

    When I was a child I had a young girl flying around inside my head and heart for years. She was who I really was and could not become because of all the painful things I had experienced from childhood on. It was years before she left me. She is gone now. Adam is an enigma and always will be. The only thing we will ever see is the smoke and mirrors which isn’t so bad.

    He is so fragile and sensitive, but he will never admit that or show it. I feel and see his fragility like an aura around him. Sometimes I think he feels fear too and doesn’t know why. A look comes across his face for just moments and then it is gone, and he becomes whoever he is at the time. Adam is a very, very old soul. This may be his last earthly incarnation.

    • GLAMB#474 kimber says:

      VERY WELL PUT! I BELIEVE IN REINCARNATION, AND I BELIEVE I WAS AN OLD MAN, AND, A YOUNG GIRL RUNNING THRU FIELDS OF GREEN GRASS. DO YOU BELIEVE? FOR SOME REASON I RELATE TO OLD MEN AND I FEEL I COULD JUST SIT IN A ROCKING CHAIR ON A FRONT PORCH AND TALK TO THE ELDERS ABOUT LIFE AND BLOW SMOKE ABOUT BS!

    • irish1139 – you give me the shivers…I feel the things you say and see those nuances in Adam that you mentioned. There is definitely an old and sensitive soul in there. I wish him (and you!) a wonderful journey this time around. Live long and prosper fellow Glambs.

  12. Thank you so much to all of you here for your wonderful comments, and for the outpouring of love and support you have always shown me. I just wanted to say that the poem has been picked up by Twitter, and I am starting to get responses there. It is also under the first heading at the top of the page on Google if you type in ‘lorrin poem enigma’. I also Tweeted the link to Adam with an extra blessing of sparkles and love, in hopes that he will receive it and read it, I can only hope. But somewhere, somehow, I am relying on those ‘6 Degrees of Separation’ that so closely link us all to everyone else on earth. Somebody I know knows someone who knows Leila, or a contact somewhere, or even Adam himself. That would be my greatest dream…for Adam to know how much he is loved, and for him to know that the someone who loves him also knows the depth of the human heart, the kind of depth he seeks to express in everything he does. And finally, I just wanted to say, Randy, that the photo above of that enigmatic young man is in no way ‘creepy’, at least, not to me. Being an artist and a thoroughly artistic soul, and being someone who has known great sorrow and great love, I understand the need that Adam has to veil his inner self at times, and to appear in disguise. In Adam’s case, he has managed to break free from the pain of his younger days to emerge as someone who can express the pathos of the human condition in art, and Adam uses his whole being to achieve this expression. He is the very picture of the masks of Tragedy and Comedy of the Greek Theater, at times drowning in the sorrows of this ‘Mad World’, and at others, rising to laugh with joy at everything he sees. Adam Lambert is a born actor in the most ancient tradition of acting, probably one of the most brilliant people in the world to have ever plumbed the depths of human sorrow or to have sung the joy of human elation. That is why we love him so much….he is the one who speaks for the human heart with all its joy, its sorrow, and pain, and we know it within ourselves. It’s almost as though he is bearing a burden, a burden to express for all of us what it means to be fully human…….I say, what a Man, what a time to be born, what things he will show us!

    Take your hand and place it over the left side of Adam’s face in the picture above. See the hidden Adam of fire and deep passion, the ‘Lord of Love’, the Man of a Thousand Disguises. Then take your hand and cover the right side of Adam’s face, and you will see the compassionate, deeply kind, loving man who looks out upon the world with piercing understanding and keenest intelligence. You can see the love and warmth in his eyes, you can feel his affection for people. Adam is an extraordinary being, and we are privileged to have him here with us in such a tumultuous time in world events, when everything is so uncertain. Adam is a steadying presence in the midst of all of this, a voice of hope and encouragement. His very presence is a gift to us all…..he is like a living crystal of many facets whose beauty will only be enhanced by use and time. Gaze into both of those eyes in the picture above. Then pick up the living crystal who is Adam and tell me, what do you see as he gazes back at you?

    • Lovely, Lorrin, the poetry and the prose. But I do feel you are your most profound with your prose…which itself is extraordinarily poetic! Every sentence holds another gem for me.

      I would like to share with everyone what a pleasant surprise I had tonight opening up next week’s TV Guide (it has the SVU stars on the cover). There on page 15 is our Adam, in a wonderful photo clearly taken from his Good Morning America gig. It announces that Adam is a runner up no more and that his upcoming CD has already hit #1 on amazon.com. I am so pleased!

      • Thanks dear Songwriter, but does this mean I have no future in lyric writing? Oh, how sad…..just kidding. Say, did you get my ‘request’ Tweet? Saw your avatar photo, you are a very pretty lady, and a very accomplished one as well. Thanks always for your kind words, and thank God Adam is finally getting some press somewhere in mainstream places!

      • Songwriter4adam, this is wonderful news, i.e. knowing Adam has rightfully taken the #1 spot! Hugs & Mmmmmmwah, Ingrid

    • GLAMB#474 kimber says:

      OH LORRIN, I’M CRYING, HOW CAN YOU BE ? HOW CAN ADAM BE? THIS SITE IS SO BLESSED WITH ALL THE GOODNESS FROM AROUND THE WORLD. I AM VERY FORTUNATE TO BE HERE WITH VERY SPECIAL PEOPLE. I BELIEVE I CHOSE THE RIGHT SITE TO BECOME AN ADAM LAMBERT FAN.

    • Silvana/Argentina says:

      Lorrin,

      once again…I’m in awe. I sooooooooooo hope Adam will read some of yopur writings.

    • Glamb#
      Lorrin,
      Your poem is as beautiful as Adam. It says everything all of us have been trying to say all these months since Adam first appeared to us
      At every AI concert Adam thanked the fans for voting for him and stated he would not be there without all of us. He is sensitive, his passion is singing, to express himself to love and reach out to others.
      Adam is a gift we have been given in a time that we need someone like him. He has a God given talent and I am so grateful that he wants to share himself and talent with us. He brought me out of a depression I had been in for years. Every morning I get up to see what there is on this site about Adam.
      Thank you again Lorrin for your beautiful words for our beautiful Adam.

      Linda in Texas

    • Helen/Canada says:

      Lorrin
      Adam is a gift to all of us. He seems to have come into our lives at a time when each one of us in our own way needed him. And you my dear Lorrin are a gift to us as well. Thank you my friend from the bottom of my heart for sharing your deepest feelings with us. Once again, BRAVO.

Please be sure to give me your Twitter name as soon as you get it here on the Glambs’ site! I will pick up on that, and go Tweet you right away…I am an old ‘Night Owl’ (I stay up really late) and I will almost always be able to chat with you on Twitter in ‘real time’ in your Tel Aviv mornings. There’s lots of Adam news out there! Did you know the Glambs’ site is on Twitter too…yes it is. So let’s communicate that way, that would be great. How is the weather over there….I think beautiful Tel Aviv and our Sacramento Valley are VERY similar in weather, hot and fairly dry….I want it to be crisp and cool instead.

        • Helen/Canada says:

          Thanks Ofra. Loved the pic! I can feel it in the air, the Adam storm is brewing!!!!

          • Sorry, girls!
            But this pic reminds me Lady Gaga on the MTV Awards! When at the end of her song she was hanging on the rope…. SORRY!!!
            OFRA, don’t hate me, please…. LOL

            • GALA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I WILL NEVER HATE YOU,BUT PLS DONT SAY LADY GAGA AND ADAM IN THE SAME TIME….SHE IT TALLNET BUT IM NOT CRAZY ABOUT HER SHE IS TO WIRD FOR ME………………….

        • Ofra, thanks for the pic. That was striking!!!!

  14. Lorrin, I have often told you that your writing deserves to be published. Awesome my dear friend! I agree with the Glamb sistas that Adam must see this poem. Something mentioned goosebumps and yes I have goosebumps. Lorrin, I am so proud of you! You grace these threads with your beautiful writing, a testament to your beautiful spirit! Love you, my dear friend!

    Glambs, Lorrin is also a very talented artist so don’t be surprised if her writing, accompanied by her own illustrations, is published one day. Come on Glambs, let’s support Lorrin in getting her poem’s (this is but one) published.

    Jeanette, kudos to you for showcasing the talents of various Glambs on this site. This is also a special meetings place where I am not only bonding with sisters from around the globe but I am also connecting with sisters from South Africa and more recently Cape Town. How can we inspire more brothers to join us????? Don’t they know they are missing out BIG TIME!

    • … meant someone mentioned ….

      • Ahh, I don’t know why I bother, reading through my post again, there are so many mistakes, anyway! Lol

        • Helen/Canada says:

          Yes Ingrid I agree, Adam must see Lorrin’s writings. She is an amazing writer, now you’ve told us she is also an artist and didn’t I read somewhere that she also sings? WOW, what a woman!!!!

  15. Lisa Imbruglia says:

    That photo is of Adam from when he and the other idols did the Ford Circus ad. I have a couple of photos of him but dont know how to put them here…. he is very sexy and mysterious at the same time…

  16. Lorrin, you already know I am a huge fan of yours – I have said so many times before. You are so very talented with your beautiful expressive words it is beyond belief! I sense, however, that there is something so truly special about our Adam that he connects to you in such a way that it opens up even more channels of expression for you. Do you sense that the words literally pour out of you as if from an other-worldly place? As if the pen on paper or your fingers on the keyboard have a mind of their own and your love for Adam is speaking to you directly? That is what I feel is happening for you – a truly cosmic connection. Thank you, dear Lorrin, for sharing your thoughts and words with us. I feel blessed indeed!

    Love and hugs,

    Jane

  17. 1. This is NOT creepy. The pic is from the Magical Ford photoshoot
    2. The poem is PHENOMENAL!!!!!!!!!
    3. Go ADAM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  18. Oh, Lorrin, wish I had time to say more…but I so much enjoyed your poem! I truly wish Adam would or could read it. He would love it, I’m sure!

  19. Adam is an entertainer… as he said” It’s not that deep”.. Let’s be careful not to build him up to the point that others want to bring him down. He’s only 27 and has much living and growing to do..We must be careful not to attribute all that we want in life to this young beautiful man… Fans did this to Bob Dylan and destroyed his marriage and almost his life. Love Adam , love his music ,but give him room to be himself .not what we imagine him to be.

    Lorrin your poem is totally lovely…

    • cheryl norman says:

      MELODY, Don’t think there is any need to worry that anyone on this site is building Adam up further than he deserves to be. He can mae a simple statement like, ‘it’s not that deep’ but we don’t need to take THAT so seriously. Believe me, it IS that DEEP to HIM!! How could your life’s dream not me THAT DEEP/ He was only being his usual HUMBLE self.

      Whatever Bob Dylan’s marriage problem was I doubt his fans should be ‘blamed’. I know his story, also. I think that statement is in error.

      Do not think anyone here is suffocating Adam so much that we need to ‘back off to give him room to be himself’. I think that kind of statement is too dramatic. We do not have that much power, that we are able to affect Adam’s life in the least!!!

  20. Lorrin, your poem was amazing….captured every essence of our Adam! Man of mystery and innocent young man.

    I remember that pic from the Ford promo shoot….

    Interestingly, I created a “masquerade type” mask for Adam that I brought to the Wilkes-Barre, PA concert. All decorated in black and blue feathers and rhinestones, of course. I had a second row seat and was not close enough to the stage to toss it up (I wanted to toss it up during Slow Ride). When I got out of my seat and walked up the stage to toss it, the security guard “strong-armed” me and told me to “get back to my seat”….what a jerk! I’m a 60-yr old woman…what did he think I was going to do? Anyway, I was VERY disappointed that Adam didn’t see my creation….I think he would have appreciated it! Not sure now if I’m going to mail it to him or save it for his solo tour!!!

    I hope Adam gets to read your poem…..I know he would appreciate it…

    Nice work!

  21. MJs Blog has reported the following:

    We may finally get our questions answered if recent rumblings around the Internets are true. There are rumors that Adam has a ton of press lined up this week, and that we could be hearing some song leaks very soon. More will be revealed, I’m sure. But in the meantime, watch adamunofficial.com’s question of the day. For some unknown reason, the peeps running Adam’s official website think his fans want to hear answers to questions they’ve already had answered–Many times, Over and over again–rather than answer relevant questions, like, say…when is the f*cking single coming out, already. Yay!

    Ain’t it the truth! JUST GIVE US SOMETHING, ADAM – PUUUULEEEEEAAAAASSSSE!

    • Jim Cantiello, an interviewer has some quotes on another site and one of them says that he can’t get one of Adam’s songs out of his head, he’s humming it everywhere, and it’s frustrating that he can’t tell anyone yet..

      Ah, the mystery continues… isn’t something supposed to happen on Oct 12? That’s our Canadian Thanksgiving day… I must check the TV menu;, is it GMA again???

      • I am hoping that some announcement IS made on Monday. There would be something so fitting it that: the single comes out on the Canadian Thanksgiving and the CD right before the American Thanksgiving – something for ALL of us (in North America anyway) to be thankful for! I know the rest of you in other parts of the world don’t celebrate Thanksgiving but if it means more of our Adam and a chance to hear his new music, we would all be willing to share with our sister and fellow Glambs!

        (GMA on Nov 24 has already been announced – not sure about anything specifically for the single, but again, who really knows!)

      • Oh my this is just too exciting. I can’t stand it anymore. Please release your single soon

    Lorrin,
    as I told you more than once, you are an amazing writer. so exquisite, so gracious. The photo it’s unbelievable, and your poem adds so much to it, it enhances everything that the picture evokes.

    I really wish so badly that your writings, and now poem, will be published, for you and for Adam to read them. I know he would feel flattered and would love them.

    Even if Adam is so talkative in interviews and it might seem that he holds nothing, I believe that there is so much of himself that he doesn’t tell, that we don’t know, maybe never. He is a man of mystery. And I love it.

  23. What I have noticed in Adam from the beginning is his many layers. I have wondered if during his years in theater, he has made a study of humanity as a way to polish his craft. Combine that with his innate gentle spirit, intelligence, remarkable wit, lovely voice, beautiful face, incredible sense of style. So many wonderful traits in one person, nearly unheard of. Leads you back to the feeling of him being an alien being.

  24. Jane Parker says:

    Fabulous poem and prose Lorrin and everyone!
    I am priveledged to be a member of a site that has such talented people!!

    I think we are the only ones with special insight into ADAM’S heart and being!!

  25. GlambChop says:

    Lorrin — I am just absolutely blown away by your beautiful words and the sentiments conveyed in your awesome poem. That picture of Adam is so powerful and speaks on so many levels and you have captured those in your beautiful, haunting poem. I truly hope that Adam will read your words and I believe he will understand exactly all of the feelings you convey in your message — both spoken and unspoken.

    Thank you for sharing your beautiful poem with us all. It is incredible and you are incredible for creating it.

    I’m giving you a standing ovation! Bravo!

  26. Lorrin, really a facinating poem and it is beautifully written…I admire people like you that can write like that…..I remember the picture….

    • AdamAddict says:

      I wish I can write like that too! I wish I am a poet then I can melt Adam’s heart with all those romantic sweet words! ~sigh~ I’m so jealous! Lorrin, you are great! That’s beautiful! 😀 You should manuscript it ,frame it then send that to Adam.Tell your age,make him super impress what he already done to all of us.Ok,Let me try something,

      Oh Adam,
      We don’t knitting on rocking chair anymore,
      That’s so old trend,
      You make us alive and no more bored,
      Now we can play with mic stand!

      See,I told yer Imma suck! lol

  27. Lorrin, you are explosively explicit! You have written a beautiful beyond words poem. What, Touching, deep and very meaningful words you have expressed by writing in your own words what your eyes saw in looking at that picture of Adam! You being a poet, is like being your own best friend. We can all truly see what a great love of writing you have and how gifted you are.
    Thank you for sharing your gift with us. Adam, Oh Adam has to read this lovely piece. Ingrid mentioned you also draw. Wow, this poem also matched with your own beautiful artwork, Adam would be ever so moved by this.
    Do I think Adam is an enigmatic person? Well he definately likes to keep people guessing. We know quite a bit about him, still there’s alot left unanswered and we are certainly very much interested in finding out more and more. I have to say, I love the mystery part of his life. He opens the door so much from his heart and to have that bit of mystery ,is Sexy! Some say enigmatic people dont say much, that isnt true of Adams personality for we know him to talk like there is no tomorrow at times. Maybe that would ring true of him, when asked very personal questions??

    Lorrin, have you had any of your writings published?? You know how Adam had AI for a platform, well you my dear may have your platform right here , your platform is Adam and our fansite.
    Love peace and happiness !!!

    Great poem! Terrible photo!

  29. Judy Blum says:

    Dear Lorrin: You are such a wonderful writer–both your prose and poetry. Are you really from this earth? I think you’ve come down from heaven to be with us as we go through our fascination with and love for Adam. The picture is amazing–I hadn’t seen it before. It will go in my collection of hundreds of Adam’s photos! I hope Adam has read your postings and the wonderful poem. Sometimes I think he may have people who read these posts and lnforms him of them. I sure hope so. Thanks again all the Glambs for all your postings and pictures/videos–I go to this site first thing every morning and am amazed at all the people who care so much for Adam. There is/was no one who can sing as beautifully as he does. He’s one hellluv an entertainer and such an intelligent and well spoken person. I love his laugh–remember when he was on Regis and Kelly and they brought out a guy who had an “Adam” wig on and black nail polish. I’ll never forget how much he laughed at that–what a wonderful sense of humor he has! He WILL BE the greatest entertainer of the 21st century.

  30. This morning, as I was packing to go to Denver for a two day training for work, I stopped at the last minute and cut out a favorite picture of Adam and taped it on my dashboard so I could smile at that beautiful face on my mad, 75 mile an hour dash to Denver in rush hour traffic. 5 miles out of the Springs, I had a major tire blow out from an embedded nail and safely landed on the side of the road … an event that certainly could have been terrible. My Adam Angel … what can I say!! Then I get home, fix a stiff drink and turn on the computer. There is your wonderful poem and t he powerful picture. No, I don’t think Adam can ever fully realize what he means to us. Reaching to understand his mystery is part of our continuing love for him. Reaching to touch us with his music is part of his continuing love for us. Every day is a treasure and this site is a warm blanket. Thank you All!!

  31. Hi – this picture is from Adam’s official website under PHOTOS and than BEHIND THE SCENES

    Your poem is utterly beautiful, bewitching, and magical, just like our Adam. 🙂

  34. LORRIN,,HOW AMAZING, THAT YOU ARE!!
    I know that you have a beautiful soul, and that is the reason that you can connect with Adam’s beautiful soul!
    You express great love for Adam and all of us, and this love is returned to you!
    Thank you so much for shating with us~~~YOU~~~~!!!!!

    • AdamAddict says:

      BTW,I think he was in bathroom.In last vid,we can here the noise outside so maybe that’s the only place they can have some peace??!!

    • Oh yea, AA, 10/13/09 What a cute and sexy expression he gave. Love it too.
      Thanks for all of these.

  37. I have been trying to get a handle on what it is about Adam that has made such an emotional impression on me; it has really shook up my life! (and I’ll never totally understand it – I think it is a spiritual thing) This site has been a joy since I realized I am certainly not the only one and I am not crazy! Adam is a mystery, even to himself in many ways; sometimes the passion and even the pain in his voice when he sings certain songs breaks my heart and brings tears to my eyes. One concert reviewer pointed out that most of what he sang on tour were songs about “outsiders” (Mad World, etc.) and it is true that Adam does not fit neatly into anyone’s box. Such a marvelous contrast too; the ability to relate great need and pain but still have that amazing upbeat, witty and fun personality. As Adam grows older, we will see many more facets of him like a valuable diamond and how wonderful to be able to participate in his journey even if it is just routing for him from the sidelines!

  38. Lorrin,
    I wrote a long and detailed post about your lovely poem, but because I am having difficulty with my computer right now it was lost in cyber space because I did not notice my name and email was not entered.

    And as I am no where near as good at writing as you, I am not going to try and reconstruct it all again. Plus my memory will never allow it…ha!

    I just want to say that I’ve read all the wonderful responses and they have said everything I felt as I read your lovely poem. You are an incredibly talented writer, and I truly hope Adam sees this poem. I know he would love it.

    Thank you for sharing with us Lorrin. You are a blessing.

  39. glamb# 442 Paula says:

    Lorrin,

    wow! Such beautiful words you are also blessed with creativity along with adam. while i love every picture of him this one now is one of my favorites because you added so much meaning to it.

    thank you for such a high spot in my day.

  40. AdamRocks! says:

    Here’s “another” interview with Adam and Lil that I’ve never seen. . . Adam is SO ADORABLE, as usual! 🙂

    Cindy in MS

    • Oh Cindy, thanks for sharing the video. Adam is so cute and hot and sexy and devilish. What a
      cool guy. Love the end, where he tells the guy ” NO, you’ll have to wait and see its an onstage
      thing about his dance moves… Just like his album coming out soon, no leaks. He loves it
      tht way. Great video.

    • Hi AdamRocks! Loved the video – so cool!

  41. Lorrin, again both the poem and the prose very beautiful. I love who Adam is, what he has achieved, and how he overcame all the difficulties he had during his teenage years, and not without the love and support of his family. I think he is both beautiful inside and out, very compasionate individual, and I hope he is happy now, he deserves it. I am fascinated to know how that picute came about. I did as you said and placed my hand on one side of the face and then on the other, but I also see a slight sadness in his eyes, maybe I am wrong. There is something really special about Adam, it is not just the beautiful voice, not his extraordinary beautiful looks, but there is something more special, will we ever found this.

  42. Just watched all the questions of the day…
    LOOOOVE Adam on Adam Question of the Day – 10/13/2009!!!!!!!!!!! He is sooooooooooo adorable especially at the end when he says: It’s a long day! And makes big eyes…. He is unbelievably handsome!!!

    • Gala, oh yeh. What an adorable teddy bear he is, makes a person just want to snuggle up
      with him………..

  43. I am going NUTS!!! Even &#%@ Susan Boyle’s CD list has been fully revealed and published (according to MJ and People) and it’s coming out the same day as Adam’s!!! What do you think is going on!!?? Hope there aren’t any problems!

    • Jane, There probably arent problems. Being a perfectionist Adam is, they want to make sure
      its the Bomb! Looks like he is still recording , full orchestra twitter etc.
      Not to worry.

  44. LuvAdam476 says:

    The picture is from when they did one of the Ford Commercials (remember Adam in the cape at the circus and Allison with him at the end. Anyway that is one of the pics from that.

    The poem is beautiful!

    ADAM ROCKS MY WORLD (ROCK & SEX GOD)!!!
    ADAM IS PURE PERFECTION!!!

  45. The way that all of you have expressed your loving thoughts on this page is very moving to me. I want you all to know that I cherish every word of them, they are like shining jewels in a golden box, each one as scintillating as the next. Every one of you had something slightly different, original, and unusual to say about our Adam and his mysterious and enigmatic persona, and the elusiveness of his private personality. You have added your own beautiful thoughts and observations to the whole subject of the mystery that surrounds Adam Lambert. Each of your thoughtful and loving comments has served to polish the brilliance of the many facets of the glittering gem who is Adam. In the days to come, as Adam takes his first steps outward toward us, we will see each of the thoughts expressed here on this page come to even fuller life, as he shows us more and more of himself in everything he does. Even though he is still partially a mystery to himself (but not entirely, believe me), as he matures, he will become ever more attuned to the richness of his own inner life, and ever more articulate in expressing what he means to say, both in his art and in his private interviews. All that he is in his ‘many layers’, the ‘veils’ that I spoke of in the poem above, will be gradually opened up and laid aside, as we see more and more of his enigmatic personality revealed. But be prepared, as Adam lays aside the shimmering veils of his disguise and we see him just a little more clearly than before, he will see another gorgeous mask he simply must have, he will put it on, smile his mysterious smile, and take up his hiding place once more. In order to stay balanced and sane, he will have to have that protection. It is an essential part of who he is.

    Again, thank you to all of you dear Glambs for being who you are, too, intelligent and loving people, and many thanks to Jeanette for ‘setting the stage’ so beautifully for me with her comments above, and for her allowing me a page of my own….my love to all of you.

  47. I hope all of you have discovered ADAM LAMBERT OBSESSION, which is probably the most excellent and insightful collection of writings on the career and persona of Adam Lambert. It is not a “fansite” per say, (but of course the title of the site speaks volumes) but a collection of min-essays by an extremely talented blogger whom many readers have encouraged to write a book. Lorrin’s poem ties in nicely with one of my favorite pieces on the Obsession site which is titled “Will the Real Adam Lambert Please Stand Up” Just Google the website, and then scroll through the Archives which are commentaries on the whole 2009 season relating to Adam. These pieces are thought provoking, and written by an individual who really “gets” Adam Lambert. Please check it out, and then lets hear your comments on the site. There is a lot of reading, but I promise you, it is fascinating. Oh, and bloggers name is Adam Bombed, and I believe he is British. I LOVE him…….
