Saying Goodbye to Love

Digital love can be heartbreaking—
like real love.
Today we can't understand love any longer
because we need or want it to be digitally.
People see themselves as an avatar
because they don't know who they are anymore.

We sit before a computer,
waiting for people to notice us.
We have no self-esteem also.
So, we hide from the real world.

One day the real world will slip
through our fingers like sand.
I know that I won't say goodbye
to the Real World
in my lifetime.

Who will join in the Losing fight?
