A touch across the Web

 

Avatars in an online society

Discovering a shared World of values and passions

 

Seeing old faces with eyes anew

And realising that some beliefs were only ever fashions

 

A rekindled vibrant vitality

Inclusively embraces the reluctantly recluse

 

Gives voice to silent desires

A place where personality unseen can seduce

 

That is where the trade-off bites

Detachment still comes at a solitary cost

 

And as real as those connections are

Logging off at night, means those connections are lost

 

Connections made in binary form

Spelling out the code for this new tale to be told

 

Where the hearts that touch us the most

Beat in the chests of loved ones we may never get to hold
