Act out when embarrassed, amp it up like a child. Caught off guard by personal inquisitions and morph into an archetypal anima, Eve. A caricature of true feelings. Grinning mask and bustier giving vision to how they perceive, a brimming burlesque. A mimicry of real feelings. Nerves are showing. Would rather epitomize the image than be judged for its similarities. The complete personification of those incomplete parts of personalities. Corset against vulnerability. A parody of actual feelings. Exaggerated expectations distorting the underlying truth. Charm off the charts, turn down the volume. Ashamed for ever speaking honestly, ever feeling genuinely. Hiding in broad daylight. Get off the goddamned stage.
A caricature is putting the face of a joke on the body of a truth. – Joseph Conrad
Talking much about oneself may be a way of hiding oneself. – Friedrich Nietzche
