The world’s gone quiet, pray tell me why
Lips unmoving, words unspoken
Friends across the globe but none beside
Fingers tapping away on pads
Everything’s gone virtual

Those we call friends, imaginary or real
Illusions, wisps, the grand delusion
I know you not, yet you know my all
My life’s journey displayed for your pleasure

Withering on the inside, lol’ing all day long
Flitter from page to page, cyber butterfly
Wishing and hoping for one true smile
Yet you pass me by without a glance
