Second Life?

By day I move in shades of grey
Just another suit
Waiting for the boot
As the shareholders bay for blood

A lonely tear falls
In my microwave meal for one
Will anyone miss me
When I am gone?

But when I get back home
The laptop sparks to life
And life begins again
The caviar of avatars,
They all fall at my feet

A heady surge 
Of pixellated power
Wipes out the pain
Of my darkest hours

    Interesting write about your life having opposite sides, so much so it seems like 2 different lives. Take the one home as the colorful one, the first one needs. It keeps us from going insane perhaps. Thanks for sharing and thank you for your comments on my poem, your guess is right. It is Korea. Caroline.

    I can imagine how hard is that situation...but don't give up, my friend. A second life? Why not? Keep writing, it will help! Ruben.
