Dinner Party by Avrel F.


conversations bounce from wall to wall filling the room with sound

forced chuckles, rushed business propositions and tense rivalry

all within four walls

diamonds dangle from ears, and dance on fingers

long dresses made of lace, satin and tulle trace the floor

all within four walls

secrets travel as shock waves, rippling through the crowd

clenched fists, tense shoulders, heads shaking

all within four walls

silence haunts the once loud room

nobody speaks, but you can hear the room think

all within four walls

a single murmur explodes into a scream

“how dare you!”

what once was a lovely dinner party  

has turned into a battle ground

words instead of weapons, diamonds as shields

all within four walls
