The Virtual Me


We’re so far away,
but I am here to stay.
It’s the virtual me.
We’re always on-line
at just the right time.
We sit and we chat;
typed messages lacking emotion
travel this way and that.
We shall never call or meet,
send only E-Mail from our seats.
How I long to kiss your lips
and feel your touch.
I cannot.
It’s the virtual me;
I don’t support that much.

  4. I guess this is us on the digital age. We have to be careful though. For one cyberspace can be cruel, what we do or say stays forever. It can be both destructive and creative depending on who is using it.

  5. As easy as virtual is, so many physical missing my dear. This time, is the physical touching that matters alot, so many things missed.
