She didn’t want anyone to know about
The state in which she lived
So much clutter
So little energy
To clean

As so she stayed alone in her apartment
Never inviting guests or friends
Too ashamed
To show them
Her home

But something insider her longed for more
Some company, someone to talk to
And so at last
She found someone
To let in

And found that she wasn’t very different at all
From anyone else among her friends
All that time
Alone at home
For nothing
