A poem about internet love...
With a broken heart to mend
...a few friend's request I did send.
I met him on the internet
...and from there my heart was set.
He was just a click away...
We began the games that lovers play.
Then a comment showing a lover's embrace
...and my heart began to race.
Down the road to his front door
to find my love forever more.
We began our life with arms entwine.
Love had never felt so fine!
It is internet romance at its best
... but I must tell the rest.
One night I woke from a slumber
... and I heard my lover mumble.
I heard him call for "Jolene."
I covered my mouth to stifle a scream.
And in his sleep the words "I love you" came
...bringing more and more terrible pain!
So I began a search to find
why this "Jolene" had crossed his mind.
There she was... as a friend.
So I looked at the comments they did send.
Pictures of a lovers embrace...
Tears began streaming down my face.
He signed one comment with 10 x's and 10 o's
...and the pain just grows and grows
With x's and o's, he signed all comments on her pages.
My green eyed monster rages...
At the time...maybe an innocent flirt
But why does it cause so much pain and hurt?
Then the comment on her pic...
"Prettiest...Sweetest..."I wish this were a trick!
"A-W-E-S-O-M-E" was another word he wrote
...and my heart just broke!
In any of my pics you see
...those words he had never sent to me.
"Jolene means nothing
" he tries to explain
...but no relief do I gain.
"They meant nothing" he says let it be.
But similar ones were sent to me.
I can't help but wonder now, how much more he duplicated.
My heart feels so heavily weighted.
Knowing she was something more
...why didn't he just shut the door?
He kept her as a friend you see
...even though he asked to marry me.
He says I'm pretty and sexy every day
...but I don't feel "A-W-E-S-O-M-E" in any way!
With "Jolene" I can't compete.
I'm not as young nor as sweet.
The pain I feel tears me inside out
...and feels my heart with so much doubt.
So in conclusion I must say
...this is truly how I feel today...
Having found my love on the internet
I definitely do not regret.
But now "Jolene" lives in my mind
and no inner peace I do not find.
I don't feel as special as I did before
...but my love for him encompasses so much more.
And one of these days this will be in the past
...for I know his love will last.
But a word of caution to the wise...
If you have feelings that you can't disguise
...put them in private space
It may not be true love... just in case.
Meaningless endearments meant to impress
caused a lot of heartache I must confess.
All those seemingly innocent flirts
can cause lots of pain and very deep hurts.
And if there was one you felt something more
... before you find another shut the door.
On the internet take a chance if you may
but proceed with caution along the way.

|Perception unfortunately is reality. The past cannot be undone and is up to personal interpretation.
Lifting the lid on yesterday's box is not always wise when one doesn't know what lays inside.
But what matters most, is today, and the future. THAT is reality...
