• Two cars in the driveway and I’m the only one home.
    Mom’s with some friends,
    Dad’s out for a ride.
    Do either of them know that they’ve shattered my pride?
    Do they even miss me?
    Me, who’s in my jeans and black shirts.
    With my crosses and chains.
    A bangle on my wrist,
    A choker at my throat.
    Me in my leather jacket,
    Sitting at home with the dogs.
    All dressed up with no place to go?
