Welcome to the social gathering
You will spend your time contemplating your performance on this apparent enjoyable occasion.
Do you find in reality that you are looking into a mirror assessing the impact you are making while wanting to be taken in by the cosiness’ that groups old and new afford themselves as a way of believing in their own self assurance that they are ok?
The mirror reflects into your eyes as you watch yourself slide out of focus and into the one guarantee from this occasion that your own lack of confidence will ensure that you are never safe in this warm smug surrounding.
The other characters in this nightmare of social realism will willingly play their part to cling and pretend to be a part of the circle to avoid the horror of catching a glimpse in their own mirror reflecting off your face.
Does everyone look into the mirror?
Is it just me who can’t think and speak in the same way as before in the social gathering?
Is it just you that can’t think and speak in the same way as before in the social gathering?
It begs the question.
Is everyone looking into the mirror or is it just you and me????
