The Spectre at the Feast

That one person no one notices
The one you care about the least
Haven’t you always noticed
There’s always a spectre at the feast
The one with the saddest eyes
The one hidden in plain sight
Casually greeting everyone
Seeming ready to flee at first fright
Can’t you just picture it?
The growing terror and dread
No one else knowing the panic
That exists only inside your head
Never knowing the right words
Hoping only it ends
Never knowing if you’re talking
To family, enemies or friends
This may all seem dramatic
I’m often called out for flair
But did you ever stop and wonder
If I know because I’ve been there?
