This is a smooth flowing piece on a difficult form. The first stanza especially sounds very natural when said aloud. I'm curious what lessons you learned, and what happened with this Internet friend. Good luck on the contest!

Thank you for comment. I may work on the rhythm of the other two stanzas. I thought the same thing. As far as lessons, not based on my own experience, a friends. Turned out not so good although they moved on to other internet friends. :) I believe it is like always, boils down to person's character online or off whether it will work or not.

Thank you Janice. You will... still early. Once I started it was not as hard as I thought it would be. Good luck!

Online friendship and dating are the in-thing nowadays. For some it works, but unfortunately not all that glitters is gold, and many are those who wake up to stark reality! gl in the contest. // paul
