A Poem by DannyLynne Riley

I still look for her everyday

in her playful cyber romps

her evidence splayed upon my page

in digital forget-me-nots


I long to tell her everything

and wear her word pearls on a string

but the words don't seem to ever come

forever trapped upon my tongue


for even in

her pixelized essence

I come undone

in her cyber presence


No one has ever moved me this way

Im hanging hard on her kick and sway

as I look for her in pockets of real

just to tell her how I feel


just to pick her clever locks

before the luminous signal is lost

dismissed within a persistent twist

for I doubt she knows I even exist

I like your choice of words, the topic and the way you structured the rhyme scheme. Some ryhming lines really cling to my mind - nice to memorize.
