Echo Chambers of Disbelief

Beware the monsters under our beds.. but worse still are the monsters just behind the veneer we casually wear….

Echo Chambers of Disbelief
by Michael Romani

In a thousand seedy places
There are monsters behind faces
Playing cleverly as saying nothing
While pretending to be all things

Too many monsters playing pretend
Stretching out their hands as if friends
All wishing to give death its defeat
Dealing out illusory dreams on the street

Echo chambers of disbelief
Do their best to stave off grief
The worse send of irony spreads like cancer
Choking out the life dreams of the dancers

Caught up in the strains of commotion
Afraid to commit to true emotion
Certain they might find their depth shallow
Something they don't dare to know

Life it seems, creates its own disaster
Chasing here and there, seeking what we're after
Each of us creates the façade of grace
Each of us a stillborn dreamer behind our face
