Ode for Online Relationships
The passion flowed through wires
soft as the air you breathed
across the wet stream you made
with a tongue that's not real.
For a moment, rapture
Yet isn't the feeling false?
--no i luv u mor
Honest as a stalker,
where here you've typed x series of keys
To represent interpreted love--
and hope she infers the same meaning you meant,
online interactions that excite and impair.
But steal your daddy's Impala just once
with plans to meet her and elope...
Here the tables start to turn--
and though you both profess online
that all your shortcomings don't really matter
one wrong move in the real world
will have her hate you by the end of the week.
