Turn Deaf Ears

Pushing people away

How her loneliness shows

She says that’s how it goes

Shrugging shoulders

But for those who know her

They see it’s more than that

Rolled up the welcome mat

Hid the doorknob

Asking others to change

Never makes it better

So, others say let her

Have her own world

She’ll stay where she wants to

Watching through drawn curtains

One thing is for certain

She calls the shots
