The Role - Play

Another morning. My mind turns to the mistakes of the past; instead of the sunrise. The shower does not minimize the sensations of regret which are touching my skin. I am on automatic pilot now. Performing the memorized routines which help me cope.

I will need to paint my face and put that “mask” of security on. Wearing my uncomfortable costume and assuming that posture. At least I look the role; I think to myself as I walk out the door. I won’t be able to breathe again for another eight hours. The set is mundane and the lighting harsh. The cast members take their place on the stage and the director yells “action. Another day, another role played.
