the next of kin

nobody knew that she was so sad
nobody thought that things were so bad

posed for the camera
and smiled right on cue
hid all the demons
that tried to break through

is it a mystery?
life's full of misery
when darkness descends
and all of your friends have abandoned you

forget all the preaching
and talk of her "sin"
none of that matters
to the next of kin
