Hidden Reality Show

 

No one knows, even dreams, what stories

have unfolded on these now empty rooms,

passions they have witnessed and secrets

forever buried within.

Comedies, dramas and tragedies, it looks

like Broadway seasons, but only staged

for walls displaying their pictures,

mute and discreet witnesses.

Unlike professional actors and actresses,

these ones took a point on anonymity, but

theirs is the true merit, for they presented

their roles live, without usual rehearsals.

You can believe they played a plot sleepless,

day after day, as well as, indeed, any of us.
