          ~Internet Love~
Words dancing cross computer screen
to one not near and face unseen
back and forth chosen words said
wanting more as each line read

words written with soulful inflection
feelings sent through net connection
hopes and dreams easy to confess
sent by each via e-mail address

aching hearts having gone unmet
sharing passion through the Internet
yearning to know what each would do
if eyes could meet and dreams come true

two hearts waiting through endless day
for connection to electonic highway
as night fades more of each exposed
thoughts and dreams in words composed

together in spirit with souls in sync
desires expressed through computer link
a fantasy meeting known only in dreams
forever this longing hopeless it seems

soft whispers coming only in word
touching a screen pretending it's heard
strangers reaching for shared unity
beyond a faceless Net identity

scrolling letters, a baring of souls
onto a dimlit screen that only glows
from a distance their hearts can see
what binds them now, will set them free

I agree the internet is a wonderful little thing for bringing people together would never otherwise meet. a wonderful and lovely poem.

"I've been too honest with myself I should have lied like everybody else"-Richey Edwards

"Take nothing but pictures. Leave nothing but footprints. Kill nothing but time".

Baltimore Grotto

"Libraries gave us power
Then work came and made us free
What price now for a shallow piece of dignity"
Nicky Wire, A design for Life.

manic street preachers
"Rock 'n' roll is our epiphany
Culture, alienation, boredom and despair"

"To be nobody-but-yourself-in a world which is doing its best night and day, to make you everybody else - means to fight the hardest battle which any human being can fight; and never stop fighting."

E.E Cummings.

i liked this A LOT! And i completely
agree. The internet can be a wonderful
source for finding true friends and
amazing people. I know I have. Great poem!
Very moving.
take care.

 "Don't be dismayed at goodbyes. A farewell is before you can meet again. And meeting again after a moment or a lifetime is certain for those who are friends."

"Fate exists but it can only take you so far,
Because once you're there
It's up to you to make it happen."

I don't know how and when I missed this, but I'm glad I found it. Its truth is powerful.   I can relate.

 Nothing can deter a poet, for he is actuated by pure love. Who can predict his comings and goings? "Thoreau"
