Solace In Silence

Being a silent observer, moving through places and meetings,

The people’s behaviour is surprisingly strange to me,

Their attempt at humourous remarks has everyone bursting in what seems like pretentious laughter;

Some of them even so loud that it causes my head to spin.

There is this almost pact-like tendency between the adults;

This kind of symbiotic relationship;

This ‘need’ for self-attainment;

A mutual agreement to comfort each others’ delusional co-existence.

They create this unheard, unseen ‘agreement’ to fulfil the illusion so as not to step outside the bounds of normalcy.

Whereas I stand out but yet I am not in the spotlight;

I am quiet in their noise;

Expressionless amid their hysterical posturing,

Sometimes, I feel like I am not even here.

  1. I feel that letting out emotions out would relax our senses and we don’t have to remember it again and again. May be small joke if you feel humourous just laugh out and stay free with open mind

    1. That’s soo true!😂But also, I think this tragicomic act of people does matter tho because of what it reveals about how one’s identity relates to everyone else’s. What say?
