The Actress

A gorgeous woman, simply magical,

But pain buried inside made her fragile.

Expensive clothes and beautiful green eyes,

Sadness and tears she had to disguise.

Always playing a role, to hide her pain,

But anger inside, would surely remain.

At home she sought love and stability,

A little girl lacking tranquility.

Her daddy was never around to be,

The father she needed so desperately.

Never at home, always out on the streets,

Never on time, only came home to eat.

Her mommy was much worse, sadly to say,

Slowly kept pushing her daughter away.

Whispering, "I love you," was very rare,

Never had kisses or a teddy bear.

An actress all her life, so no one knew,

How she suffered, and the pain she went through.

This is how it ends, and no one will know,

That closure is all she needs to let go.
