On line Friendship

We met on a word game, in cyberspace

We got on well we bonded and chased

We talked and shared, our lives our schemes

Hard to remember, it is a fantasy, a dream

For we only know the other, from the information shared

Keeping secrets, though the soul seems bared

We share our lives, from our own point of view

Not a rounded version from others too

We share an oasis, from life’s woes and cares

We are friends indulging in a cyber-affair

We share great intimacy, its exotic erotic

But its words and pictures, it’s only symbolic

It revs up our hormones and gives us a thrill

Feels so real our needs to fulfil

We find so much in common, it gives us a high

We see the nice bits, not the grumps or the cry

We have a view of another’s life

Sharing the pleasures and some of the strife

We need to remember while the interaction is real

Our mind adds in details, too many, surreal

But the real world comes first, has to be the case

Fantasy is just that, it may have a place

Enjoy the moments the tingle and the fun

If your emotions entangle, it’s time to run

Understand the rule,s keep them in mind

Then friendship not heartbreak will be

The bottom line.

 

Dedicated to all those who meet and interact on line. Relates to Converging Lives the novel.

    1. Yes agreed, and one meets people that one would not have met in real life. The downside for some is that reality and fantasy blur and people fall in love with the cyber personae which may only be part of the real personality. I have met people who have been hurt quite badly because they became too involved. The plus side is one can also make great friends and learn so many new things its amazing. S.

      1. I know that the hurt side is out there, and it worries me, especially when I think of vulnerable people who commit to online relationships that may be potentially very damaging. Alas, there is a down side to everything. On the other hand, there are excellent working relationships, too, and I guess that, as in all things, we must quickly realize how to separate the good from the bad.

      2. I think maybe some of the poor relationships develop in a similar way to poor relationships in any sphere. I think its magic one can sit on one side of the world and converse, collaborate, share with others thousands of miles away. Its wonderful to have access to the work of so many talented people and to find and try new styles of writing etc. I also love the glimpsed into how other people live and relate its fascinating.

      3. I agree with you. The blog has been a revelation for me, also the wider world of computer communications. I did online teaching for a while (I preferred hybrid with some face to face) — it was fascinating.

      4. I am doing a diploma in fine art at the moment unfortunately there is no face to face but I am really enjoying it. The ability to access museum and gallery collections around the world is amazing.
