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
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.
