This is not an illusion

Voices on top of voices
tell us
what they think we want to know
truth lost
to compassion

Voices under voices
trick us
with soft murmurings
into believing they really mean
what they say

Voices within voices
elude us
the real story hiding
buried deep under
word and emotion

This is not an illusion

What you are hearing
is real
but what is real
is a lie
and what lies beneath
is twisted, warped
under the pressure of
reason
