Solipsistic Angst [with audio]

She comes into the house unannounced
doesn’t bother a quip when asked to speak
slams the door shut
and takes to her room to retreat

Behind the locking door, music blares
her demeanor tells everyone she doesn’t care
her closeted persona is darkness deeper
than the black eyeliner coupled with black hair

She’s never known love
never been the center of affection
lies, misdeeds, and betrayal
stem farther than the daily rejection

Her parents plead with her in this game of life
but more and more she becomes recluse,
to live intentionally amongst the trials
she spares only an excuse
