Nightmare in Disguiseby Jason Meres
What role will you play tonight,
Oh poor and heartsick soul?
Another part to fill and tame,
A brand new life to mould.
Can anything redeem you?
Anyone to bring you home?
A simple thing to venture out,
And find you where you roam.
And what, if finding you is done,
Will you ever truly heal?
Will you open up to someone,
Or allow yourself to feel?
Locked inside a cracking shell,
No music finds your ears.
And though you have so many friends,
No one can dry your tears.
If in your heart, there lies a soul,
I’ll search for it forever,
And if one day I find it, whole,
I’ll praise the grand endeavor.
Your life lived out as theater,
Oh, operatic fool.
The curtain raised, and you alone,
Will find out life is cruel.
Yet cruelty itself,
Is not enough it seems.
Your life has more to offer you,
A gift-wrapped in your dreams.
Things you’ll see, terrible things,
All dancing before your eyes.
For life has given you once more,
A nightmare in disguise.
