Kept woman

kept woman

She had a world of
glitter, magical things
anything money could buy
but love.
Emotions did not bleed
on her satin sheets
stars did not impress
unless from Hollywood
which only gave her a reason
to dress, undress.
Nights were filled with leeches
sucking out her life
in dim lit bars
making promises to her inner whore
she fought to conceal
but once secrets leaked out
label stuck throughout her dreams
like a bottle of cheap wine
men wanted to sip down
then skip town.
She had a world of
anything but love
to keep her
kept around.
