Virtual Friends

Virtual Friends by Antony Alldis

Be my friend - say "hi" to me when I'm online
Although I don't really know you
We can get to know each other
Over time

But I don't really know you though, do I?
Can you replace a real friend?
Someone to go down the pub with?
Someone to go to the pictures with?


I really miss that...
My real friends from years gone by
All grown up, married with kids, and moved away
No one to go out with anymore, and share those social moments

You live hundreds of miles away, and yet we chat almost every day
About the weather, about last night's TV
Our hates, our loves
What turns us on, and what turns us off!

You know things about me
That no one else knows
Intimate thoughts and desires
That I have confided in you
And you, in me

From our bedrooms we chatter away
On computer keyboards
Spanning vast distances
In milliseconds

Are we redefining friendship in the age of the internet?

My 2,320 other virtual friends might think so!
