VANITY

VANITY

 

The mirror spoke to the bed-frame
People used to stare at me in AAA but lately no one came
All from kings and queens and whoever seeks fame
and now I exist no more and I’m crying in shame
They were beautiful creatures indeed replied the bed-frame
Beautiful!? Beautiful you say!? Is it true!? Or you’re just playing a game?
For I could only see my beauty in their eyes and I’m not to blame
For my beauty is divine and I haven’t seen the same
