A Touch of Perfect – #poetry #SeptemberWriting

Night Owl Poetry - Dorinda Duclos

Hollywood called her Marilyn Monroe
Though her name was Norma Jeane

But that would never befit a star
This siren, of the silver screen

Sensuality made her famous
They would melt, with a just wink

Abused by those around her
Found her on the edge, the brink

Pills would ease the torture
That went on inside her head

Until the day they found her
A body, lifeless, across the bed

Her light had now been dimmed
After years of sheer neglect

But Marilyn would, forever, remain
A shining star, with a touch of perfect
