Friends Without Faces

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 

We sit and we type and we stare at our screens,
We can't help but wonder what all of this means.
With mouse in hand ...we roam through this maze,
On an infinite search...lost in a daze.

We chat with each other, we type all our woes
At times we'll band together to gang up on our foes.
We wait for somebody, to type out our name
We want recognition, but it is always the same.

Soon friendships are formed - but - why we don't know,
But some of these friendships, will flourish and grow.
We give kisses and hugs, and sometimes we'll flirt,
In IMs we chat deeply, and reveal why we hurt.

Why is it on screen, we are so easily bold,
Telling our secrets, that have never been told.
The answer is simple, it is as clear as a bell,
We all have our problems, and need someone to tell.

We can't tell real people, but tell someone we must
So we turn to our 'puters ...and to those we can trust.
Even though it sounds crazy...the truth still remains,
Most of my "friends" have no faces...and odd little names.

Bundy, that is such a great poem! I'm so glad that you decided to come and visit all of us once in a while. Even though I'm fairly new to the website, I've grown quite attached to everyone on here...including you. You always have a kind word to say...

I agree, that poem is so true. I find so much comfort in being able to come here where everyone listens.

I love that poem. How true...and who would have thought 10 years ago that some of the people you truly call your friends would be those you have never met.
