The Fake Reality

!!What is real, is not really real
What is fake, is not really fake!!

Our emotions, our feelings
our closeness, our dealings
needs to be hidden
inside a cocoon, for
if they are taken out
are considered buffoon.

!!What is real, is not really real
What is fake, is not really fake!!

But why is reality considered weak
and fakeness is no more bleak?
Why do we pretend to be real
when fakeness has already taken the lead?
Still, we burn in reality
and glow in duality.

!!What is real, is not really real
What is fake, is not really fake!!

The dreams I get
the shivers that beset
deep down the spine
not at all benign
hovering my past, still
in my present.

!!What is real, is not really real
What is fake, is not really fake!!

Do stars tell the truth, for
I keep staring at them
with far more warmth
and less of brutality
Keeping away from fakeness
holding tight the reality.

!!What is real, is not really real
What is fake, is not really fake!!
