Ft. Lauderdale, Fl USA
There had to be someone out there.
Of that, I had no doubt.
I thought I'd use the 'search' routine
To help me seek you out.
I typed the word "romance" in,
Convinced you would be there.
Three zillion possibilities
Appeared from everywhere.
True romance, and romance novels,
Magazines and books,
Romance the Stone and sweet romance,
Romantic thoughts - GADZOOKS!
I entered in the word "love".
I didn't see your name.
I tried "desire" and "need" and "trust"….
Results were all the same.
So then I typed in "passion".
Well, I could have read for hours
At all the entries that appeared!
(What are those golden showers?)
I've been alone so long now
I only want to see
The smiling face of someone who
Will just be nice to me.
I finally typed "I need someone!",
A plea in every word.
The screen went blue, then said
"A fatal error has occurred….".
I'll try again tomorrow.
Love has no substitute
And, if at first you don't succeed,
Reboot! Reboot! Reboot!
