BEAUTIFUL EMPTY SHELL

BEAUTIFUL EMPTY SHELL by Sonya Young

Sleeping in a bed of futility
Restrained by society’s rules
The moon is surly and bitter
Her heart stained with fury

A goddess of everything shallow
Seduced by invisible forces
Her reality now tissue thin
A plague upon her mind

A portrait ….a masterpiece
Canvas torn and the paint screams
A smile ripped right in half
Framing life’s grotesque illusions

The casting couch made of concrete
She with her red gypsy heart
Spread her legs and sold her soul
Grazed hips and dampened dreams

Self esteem now found in a bottle
Confidence a hand full of white pills
Life is read from a screenplay
Fame leaves a beautiful empty shell
