Reality today...

Just like a film

Every headline reading

What you need to do

To protect yourself

From everyone else

Living in a hologram

A simulated world

Unlike what we have

Seen before

The dream state seems more

Real than this

Everything is so surreal

Are we in a man made dream

And the world beyond

Still just keeps turning...

You got me to thinking about how even our fun times being together are surreal right now.

It is true. It doesnt seem real, but it is.

Like a page from a horror novel. I hate to turn on the television most days.

Thanks for sharing.

Certain lines speak volumes. Dreams being real, are we in a dream, living in a hologram. Exceedingly original.

Surreal is indeed the right word, and yours is an excellent expression of the common feelings right now. Thanks for sharing.

Everything does feel very surreal at this moment Caroline and your poem describes this very well. We will get through this though not without a reality check. Beautiful writing.
