Who are you?
I will probably have to re-do this later. Just an idea that came to me




Who are you, sitting in that chair?

Gazing at that little box

Weary eyes, rollers in your hair

Grey now streaks once golden locks.


Past memories now fill your head,

As you punch the keyboard with your thought

Trying to find, the one to share your bed

Despairing as your search turns to naught.


You filled your profile with many lies.

Trying to pretend who you’d like to be

You do not hear your children’s cries.

Your head is filled with fantasy.


You type in words that are untrue

No webcam adorns your desk.

Even your Photograph is not you.

Taken twenty years in your past.


You long for romance’s sweet caress

Since he left life’s passed you by.

You have no life; your home’s a mess

You lie awake at night and sigh.


Each day we can find you sitting there

For this is the total of your life.

Computer screen and swivel chair.

For nothing else is in your life.

I once saw an internet cartoon of a woman, typing while her husband slept, and she was telling someone she was an 18 yr old cheerleader.
It made me chuckle, because I think there is alot of BS on the net, but your poem, oh, just makes me so sad, its blunt and real. so well written........
I think internet relationships offer a type of hope to people who would be lonely without this connection....I cannot say, if its a danger or blessing......

well written Robin.........pax A

This can be a stark reality for some in the new "millenium" and the age of cyberlove. Strong message, Robin. Love and peace. Regis

Very interesting. It flows beautifully, leaving the reader to his/her own thoughts as to how close they come to this picture you have painted with your words.

Reviewed by Andre Bendavi ben-YEHU 1/26/2005
This is a depicting of reality... "Who" flows on leaving the vapor of wisdom, and makes the point, leaving the message delivered.

A touching reading I have found in "Who".

Long Healthy Life Poet!

Whoa and this could fit a lot of people. But you know the line about the photograph being taken twenty years ago reminds me of those obituaries with a picture of an eighteen year old kid at the top.
