Something a little different today – not really sure where it came from other than the first line came to me last night and I decided to expand on it.
However, I’m no poet and neither is this a portrayal of how I feel (ooh, I hope I haven’t made it seem too gloomy for a Monday!)… but I wonder if some in the virtual world do have these thoughts.
We’re so easily connected these days and yet often further apart than ever. Anyway, as always, I’d love to hear your comments. 🙂
Do I exist as merely light from your screen?
As words on a page, a face never seen?
Do you set aside times to allow me to speak?
Neglected when busy or silenced all week?
Do you ever consider what fills up my day,
Beyond the image I like to portray?
Do you imagine my lifestyle, my smiles and my tears?
Is that of no interest, unless posted here?
Do I only inhabit the bytes on your cell,
Or have I formed memories and stories to tell?
Does attention come only if reminders are sent?
Would you bother to ask me how last weekend went?
Do you see things I’d like, that you’re eager to share?
Or am I not real, so there’s no need to care?
Do you feel we’re connected, can I call you my friend?
Or is life force extinguished once unplugged, yet again?
