Cyber Life

The little mouse is scrolling as the ocean waves are rolling and they beckon me to come down to the sea The screen before me glowing while outside the flowers growing have a fragrance that is calling out to me The keyboard keeps me busy at the same time I am dizzy yet the birdsongs out my window sound so sweet While the gigabytes are loading my poor eyeballs are exploding and the circulation doesn’t reach my feet One last video, I say then another makes its way interrupting my intentions to go out One more minute, then I’ll quit one more hour, here I sit I’ve forgotten just what life is all about There is work and there is play but somewhere along the way all my play times are so few and far between Push a button, L O L while my spirit goes to hell as I live my cyber life upon a screen

Incredibly indicative of the life so many of us computer "addicts" live nowadays. I'm guilty too... as I've become more and more of a hermit. I guess it's an escape from and yet also an attachment to the world we live in today. Congrats on such a poignant and relevant POTD, Michael.

This is sad, but so true. Living in the cyber world, truly isn't living at all. I hope you are enjoying time away from the screen, even if for a moment. :) Congratulations Michael, on Poem of the Day. ~ Brandy

This could not have been any better. A FAV for me, as I can relate to this in so many ways - hooked on word games, and now poetry sites! Ugh! I see myself so clearly, not nurturing my true spirit, living this fantasy life. Thanks for the life lesson, my friend.
