Starlight, stage fright

All the lights on stage are bright.

Acting, packing

A home for an actress is slacking.

Down stage, up stage

Everything feels the same

Roses, poses

She feels overexposes.

Make-up, pay cut

The world feels corrupt.

Fashion, fame

It’s not worth your name.

Curtain call, death call

Her act is finished once and for all.
