Forgotten Star

In her days of glory  she was a Movie  Star
A symbol of beauty,  even from afar
Winning a couple of Academy Awards
Her fame and fortune were in the Cards

But the years had crept upon her  face
Now wrinkled by time's inevitable  embrace
She had gotten  weak  and could not stand
Without being given a helping hand

Now she's tucked away in some obscure place
Faded are her beauty and grace
Her memories now are often scarred
She had now become a forgotten Star

    Congratulations on your #3 win in my contest! how heartbreaking to be this star - I like how you said "tucked away", showing it's not by her choice, and memories "scarred" because it's a bitter pill to swallow after such adoration :)
