Composed Hearts

The curtain falls and the stage goes dark
The crowd leaves shocked to the core by another encore
Another breathless night

The actress holds her rose
Her bold eyes staring past the scene
Always told to retire
Always told to be a certain way
Her makeup stays in place
Her careful smile never fades

Through heartache
She still composes herself like a perfect doll
Her steps precise
Her ways holding her anchored to this world
But her eyes, her eyes never lie
Though her face is composed
Her heart shines through her eyes

She’s never let anyone in
Let anyone be close to her
Let the heartache touch her flawless record

Her heart aches
Her eyes shine with unshed tears
But still she shines
She still hold the audience captivated not one misstep

She stand there like the perfect mannequin
While the strings hold her upright
She still smiles
She still holds on
Even though she’s falling apart
That smile never fades
Even after the curtain falls
