Love in Cyberspace

Thousands of miles,
Oceans between us,
But it doesn’t matter
That they are there.
Wires, satellites,
And optic cables —
Just threads
In the electric web
That brings us together.

Side by side,
We stand
In the network stream,
Emotions flowing,
Electrons flying,
So many data bits
Each second!

I reach out
And touch my screen,
But it’s your hand
That I find there,
Reaching out for me.
Virtual fingers entwined,
We hold each other —
This is love
In cyberspace.

  1. This poem was written in early 1992, not long after meeting the man that is now my husband in an internet-based chat forum. Yeah, I ‘fell’ for him quickly.
