I check occasionally to see if you have unfriended me–
The silence from you makes me wonder just sometimes.
I don’t want to message you to tell you how I feel,
And I don’t want to vaguebook something that will make you wonder how I am
Because I’m not even sure you care any more.
I miss the days of OMG and LOL and look at me! I’m thinking of you!
IMHO, I miss you. You’re just a name in cyberspace to me these days.
Will it ever change?
I’m having an interesting time with these poetry prompts. There’s just enough truth in some of them that brings some hidden emotion bubbling beneath the surface. I can’t decide if it’s good or bad when that happens, so I welcome whatever comes as whatever is supposed to be. This poem, yes, brought up some sad feelings covered in a lot of Facebook jargon. It doesn’t mean the feelings aren’t real. Nor does it mean that the feelings expressed are life-changing. I’m learning that sometimes that I can express feelings in ways that don’t need to bring attention to me or what I’m feeling. They just are what they are. Words with feelings entwined.
