Faded beauty

She went to Hollywood
To be discovered
The part she got
She played uncovered

She wanted the part
She did what he asked
That was long ago
That was in the past

She bleached her hair
Did anyone care
Most of the time
She had nothing to wear

Her former life
Didn’t last long
A much better part
Soon came along

An ingénue
She played the part
That’s how she was cast
That was her real start

Very few knew
That part she once played
A porno star
With her body displayed

The leading lady
A starring role
That was her dream
She reached her goal

But no awards
She wasn't adored

She never married
Though many proposed
Living alone
Is what she chose

A matronly woman
She did become cast
Then soon forgotten
When time had passed

A porno star
And then a queen
On the silver screen
She's no longer seen
