As we all know, the Internet and its ability to connect anyone anywhere to another has brought many friends into our lives. Losing the "links" to some of these wonderful people is painful, in brooding on this issue, I could only hope that I was remembered occasionally, with a smile. :)

I don't mind being
an afterthought,
if the thought
that was thought,
of what I thought,
brought the thought
of us sharing
smiling thoughts

to you.

I wrote this after penning "Tenuous Connections", and, since it is a companion piece, I will repost that poem here, though many of you have seen it before.


Tenuous Connections

"Silly soul!", she muses,

as once again, time clicks,
and ticks, and slips away,
ungracefully shuffling
her fleeting fate, removing
and dragging pieces
of her life into oblivion,
crackling her mind,
and ripping threads
from her heart,
knotting and snarling painfully
as cyber friends
drop from sight.
the forces of dawns,
reality checks, and
she feels..faded,
less than complete,
missing in non-action,
and melancholy-mooded,
sifting and shifting
through mind's
memory doors, opening
laughter and tears,
screams of despair,
brooding madness echoing
into the night and
the colored dreams
of beautiful souls
shared lives, thankful, yet,
yearning for
the tenuous connection
of doors
who's keys are...lost.

"Silly soul", she weeps.

My hubby often says, "They are just cyberpals, not REAL friends," and I always say, "They are more REAL than lots of friends I've had"...cleverly put...good job!

My dear Erin, friends, cyber and otherwise, have permanent residence in our hearts and in our heads.. perhaps our online friends are even more special, proving that a face and a body have nothing to do with the depths of feeling. You have a deluxe suite in the hotel of my heart! (smile). Worry not. love, katy.

Excellent Write so so real.

Erin, excellent writing. I sometimes run a burst of words such as this and hope that it makes sense to someone else. What is scary is when it makes sense to us. We sometimes re-read it, sit back and say, " HUH! " Well done. Enjoyed the read.
