FALLEN

Laughter and tears

both rise and fall

like bubbles

in her glass and bath.

The star

shines bright

in the studio light,

but fades

in lonely nights.

Created in make-ups

and dye

- living a false lie.

Brought down

by pills

and mental ills?

- dying in lonesome chills.

Laughter and tears

both rose and fell

like stars

glued in her heavens.
