From Andrew Lloyd Webber's Cats musical. Grisabella was one of my favorite characters because her past was so glamorous, but she became nothing important and an outsider...
Enjoy.

Eyes open.

Sunlight streaming through an open shutter.

An angry mutter spurs from her lips.

Another day older.

The world moving ahead of her before she can catch up.

Tattered bedsheets.

Dusty air.

How'd she end up here? When not 3 years before she was an A-list celebrity.

But her fatal mistake destroyed her worth

to the world.

All glitter and glam crumbled to

grittle and bone.

A stone on the side, she'd become.

Walking the streets at night to avoid the laughs.

"Thats Grisabella!" They'd shout as she'd boil with wrath, But

sadness would soon after overtake her..

She sombered to the window.

The sun springing down on the city.

The city that once, she owned.

Now she stays clear of its towers,

which at one time, she felt she stood on top of...

But no..

With sparkling dresses, she could only strut across her own creaking floor.

Alone in her self-fame.

Her own paparazzi.

Standing in the mirror now, she knew to not look into her own eyes.

Her family wouldn't have believed before

Her friends, in laughter, would have cracked

if someone ever supposed that

that

was

Grisabella..
