“recluse..” is for ShoutHouse. Written in 2016.
recluse.. lyrically is about the story of a person who is bit by a recluse (spider). The person then becomes a human recluse as they retreat due to the growing skin lesion across their body. They become a dehumanized recluse as their changing personality pushes their friends away. This story is told through three verses, the first and last by the same MC and the second verse is done by another MC.
