Bette Davis

Before the stars fall tonight,
Fasten your seat belts.
It’s going to be a bumpy ride.

A legend
Burning invincible
Spreading across the light
Splitting apart the darkest night
A star, so bright

She sang
She danced
Kept men imprisoned
Stuck in an abusive trance
But oh, she was lovely
Capable of such love

Later standing cold
Abandoned yet steadfast
Confident.
Demons veiled from confidantes;
Exposed to all, only once
In small movie.

Tonight she shows for a final number.
Ladies and gentlemen, refrain your hands.
Yes, subdue your applause.
If the light should shine, then LET it shine
One last time
Before the stars fall tonight
Fasten your seat belts
It’s gonna be a bumpy ride.
