where am I again?

-there I was 
at a leaving do 
for two strangers
two strangers
I never even knew;
a feast of food
before me and 
unfamiliar faces
all around;
I was bound 
to retreat
before tears were shed, 
tears of the two strangers
two strangers that I just met
before I lacked the graces
to say the right words
-the words blurred-
-they went unheard-
there i was;
impending departures
speeches and emotion;
not mine, not belonging to me
but I was going through the motions 
as I sat there
as I so often do 
and wondered
as I so often do 
where am? where am I again?
where am I?
I wish I knew...
