The Aged Actress

She walks on stage
The people have all gone
The light have faded to black
Still she walks to center stage
Her eyes glisten in the light from the exit sign
Her looks have long since gone
Age has taken a bad toll on her
Yet, she remembers the days so long agao
She would take the stage
Singing and dancing
She owned the stage
To the audience she was their goddess
A beauty beyond what God could create
Now she stands before an empty house
No one wants to see her dance
No one wants to hear her sing
She is a has been no one cares about
Still she stands on the stage
And lives a life only in her memories
Memories that will soon fade
The star that she was flickers and dies
And she will be gone
Even from her own mind
