Here I am.
Before you.
I was lost.
Just a while ago
In reality.
I return
To absolve
Myself clean;
To this virtual space.
We often meet.
Oh! What pretense
This is?
Where a conversation
Means no contact.
There’s a connect
With a curtain
In between.
Emotions are mere
Brackets, colons
Slashes, hash
Hyphens and other
When I
Have a lot to say;
With abbreviations
And acronyms,
I say it least.
When I need to silence
I :) or ;)
Leaving your imagination
To assume anything.
Where my thumb
Plays the tongue.
And your eyes
Act as ears.
Oh! What pretense
this is?
:-) :-( :-/ :-# :-|
Hope you understand
What I mean?
If not
I’m confused.
I guess
We are
Just going in circles,
Here I am.
Before you.
I was lost.
Just a while ago
In reality.

The post made me :)
It made me realise...
how much do words convey!
Written word has a way,
No less than the spoken word I say, Scribbled, spoken and those that spring from keyboards and mice ;)
Aren't all words rather wise?
