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
