Starlet

Tragic
a cautionary tale
for those who will come behind
remember beauty
not as extolled
reality
image seen in the mirror
behold the truth
as seen through the eye of the beholden.
Cracks grow
awash in desperation
grim
pale shadows
flit through the night
scourge of delight
filling ears with hissed toxicity
bringing ego down
shattered malaise.
Adulation
false words
believe in them
easier to fake it
easier to pretend
easier to…..
turn away
hide away
no one ever comes looking
crying smoked tears.
Wrapped in golden tinsel
heralded the next great find
actress of many faces
not a one real.
