Lustrous words reach across the Miles Tugs heart strings and makes one Smile Speaks of Love and Starry Nights Heavenly whispers - wondrous Sights Invites one on those moonlight Walks Orchestras serenade - sensual Talks Stirs up passion and Stirs up Fire Tempts one into this game of Desire
Chorus Cyber Love
Behind the screen so thrilling – it seems so divine Then you get confusing there’s no peace to find You are playing with my emotions and so Don’t tease me like - you do
Churns out promises on a stream of Cyber Zaps out words through tendrils of Fiber Emotions on alert though ever so Fleeting Inhabitations aside - a great way of Meeting Chorus Cyber Love
Behind the screen so thrilling it seems so divine Then you get confusing there’s no peace to find You are playing with my emotions and so
This Cyber Love - Alack - Alas Will only break a Heart of Glass Oh what wanton rose can feeling resist Pricked by thorns of cyber kiss Chorus Cyber Love
Behind the screen so thrilling it seems so divine Then you get confusing there’s no peace to find You are playing with my emotions and so Don’t tease me like - you do
Oh Oh Cyber Love Oh Oh Cyber Love Oh Oh Cyber Love Fantasies of Love a foolish Delusion Hearts on a sleeve complete Illusion Changing intentions - twisted Perceptions Ignore the warnings - embrace Deceptions Oh Oh Cyber Love Oh Oh Cyber Love Footnote: Many a love affair has blossomed successfully from cyber friendships and cyber groups all made possible from cyber space in this hectic world of ours. I’ve seen it work and it gives new meaning to the phrase ‘love is made in heaven’. But lonely, vulnerable people should heed their mind and heart, being wary of not falling victim to an illusion. Music Blondie instrumental Heart of Glass

Maria, I'm not kidding when I say that you are a fantastic writer (no matter that it's a poem, a lyric, a narrative story). Your writing shows so much professionalism and polish, and it motivates me to improve my writing.

I love that song Heart Of Glass Debbie Harry :) when I was in my dichroic glass class. I made around 20 glass hearts. You did a great job reworking the words. And thank you for reading my poem called Words :)

Great lyrical poem, Maria! It rocked. The message is what enthralled me so, even more than the cool music. Great lines throughout this grand ode warning us of fictitious lovers. Ty for dropping the love and knowledge. Love always, sista.

Cyberlove can be so exciting and fun but it's true, one must be extra careful. And yes, hearts are like glass...so easily broken because love is truly blind sometimes, especially when the object of one's desire is a master/mistress of words...powerful words. But then I think sometimes that even cyberlove is better than no love at all. That's why some of us are more vulnerable than others.

Thats very true Carole, but I think a little caution is necessary, and a little perception on the persons part wouldn't go astray. When alarm bells start going off then one has to use gut instinct, I think. But we do hear of many a great love affair that has blossomed , so I guess it has become a necessary way of life? Thanks for the visit Carole...Maria

Maria, this is a brilliant mutation of one of my favourite tracks; cleverly adapted to a different message. Wish I'd thought of it, but love it. I also echo Cecilia's comments.

Thanks so much Geoffrey. You must have picked up on my thought signals. I was going to ask you if you would like to add 2 lines to it or 4 I'm short on my lines and thoughts. See George V at the bottom. I'll use those 2 that he gave me. And I was going to ask Cecilia for another 2. Thanks for the visit and lovely comments Geoffrey... Maria

Gone are the days when people met their future partners at church gatherings or at the dance halls, though some have been lucky and found love on the internet, others have been very cruelly deceived, warning signs are always there so be wary...excellent, prolific write dear Maria 7+

Thanks so much Cecelia, you wrote a poem earlier on this theme, so pleased that you liked this too...Maria xxx

Hi Maria...your poem is a warning to those who are easily taken in by words...the gift of the gab! Friendship and even love can be found online, but imposters are also in abundance. Lonely people can fall victim to fantasy/illusion...my advice is to heed not only the heart, but the mind, too. I have made great friends on Soup, and my instinct rarely lets me down! Full marks for your written thoughts...and the music that accompanies them. Regards // paul

Thank you Paul for your fine summary of my thoughts. Too many a time I’ve seen trusting people - lonely or just seeking relationships ‘Crash and Burn’ by trusting anonymous cyber impostors. Others who have been discerning, done their due diligence and developed beautiful friendships and relationships. The same principal that’s applied in the commercial world. Your fine comments much appreciated…Maria

Excellent and well expressed of the theme . Enjoyed reading it. Thanks for sharing.

Not everything online is false, sure, be careful, I won't deny that. But if it weren't for online love and friends, my life would be very lonely. Don't dismiss the power of online friends, just be cautious :)

Hi Darren, did you see my reply to you below? - I'm referring to some of the online dating that show a different image to what's real. I know some people who have been lured. Keep your friends close. Maria xx

Maria that line is a spinoff from a piece I wrote, "Pricked by Prose" on the same very theme as yours. You may use to hearts content, dont mention me. Thank you for your kind support. First stanza was: O' rueful wanton rose pricked by passions thorn did not a sharp kiss forewarn his scornful virulent pose

Hi George, I love that line of yours, O Wanton Rose!! Could use it here if you like and put your name along side? Let me know. Go write some more brilliant stuff dear friend, we need to read your amazing work. Thanks for the visit...Maria

As long as there are hearts and as long they yearn to love they are bound to become glass hearts and then break! The whole composition of music and words is marvelous. Yo have done something unique dear Maria!

This was fun and beautiful and really expresses the theme well. It is easy to fall into words we read, we see them and relate, at times feel they may be written for us alone, when in reality they float constantly on the winds of change. Not so much deception but perception. Really cool Maria.
