My Cyber Friend

I met him somewhere in cyber and our lives began to share
The things we had in common that whisk us everywhere
He was probably the greatest poet that I had ever read
His "gift" entwined so deeply, thought woven in his head

Slowly passed the years as we fastened our beliefs
Steadfast to each other through the joy and the grief
This team we'd formed fought hard and long 
Defending the lesser to make them strong

Nothing would ever stop us, then "suddenly" he was gone
Saying "I don't know you, "  Was I possibly a pawn?
Never had I this heart break in my contented life,
Not even as a mother nor as a faithful wife

I choked on spit that followed, determined to forget
Without my cyber friend, I would make it past regret
Today he came back and my heart stopped to read
Perhaps what we learned is simply to ....."Believe"

    I loved riding this crazy train of emotions. I have sometimes felt that same passion for people I've never even met in person. There's something about talking to people online... you almost get to know them better because there's no outer shells you have to see through... you get a glimpse of the person within! Perfect ending, too... don't so suddenly lose faith in people, for they can always turn themselves around... awesome work!

    WOW!! A very intense read... a friendship that many of us cherish here in cyber space! They are friendships that never ever need be consummated with physical face to face contact. I think a greater connection is made without all the trappings and distractions that usually come into play! I can certainly feel your despair and then your elation! Hugs, Jack xox
