light and shadow

in the light

sparkling glitter
painting red porcelain lips
soft smile, rosy cheeks

voice of an angel
fallen from the high heavens
golden harp in hand

a powerful soul
crushing expectations
shattered records left.

in the shadows

pearly drops of blood
spill from cracked lips of raw skin
tears drip on bare floor

a hoarse voice destroys
her self-worth; mic thrown aside
i can never sing

nightmares crawl in dreams
fear of disappointing fans,
being forgotten.
