#159: Gag Reflex (Thoughts)

[a la “Fuck the Audience”]

WHO FEELS ALONE?
WHO FEELS ALONE?

Do you feel alone?
Do you feel alone?
What about you?
Are you alone?

Is that your girlfriend?
You probably shouldn’t be together.
Hold hands.
Prove it.
Hold each other’s hands

Isn’t that nice?

Are you holding each other back?
Are you?

Who’s holding you back?
You?
Yourself?
You’re not doing yourself any favours

It’s you, isn’t it?
You’re holding yourself back.
I can’t help you.
Don’t ask me for help – I don’t have it.

It doesn’t have to be like this

The only person who can help you is you

It doesn’t have to be like this!

This is not an empowering story

Don’t laugh

Don’t clap

And whatever you do, don’t smile

I’ve been feeling queasy lately

I went to the doctor

Let me tell you about that

Wait

Are you still holding hands?

LET GO.

Just let go and go out on your own.

Feeling alone?

Good.
