LOL in a letter

LOL in a letter

A Poem by O!

I remember losing my virginity;

How I first stepped

into this world of virtual insanity

Scared and apprehensive

But drawn

It is not that I did not want

for it to be, for what then happened
I was here - unsure, uneasy,

yearning in my anonymity

To be touched


You reached out

As others did

Teaching me to feel safe
To let go

Your jargon became mine

LOL is what I did
Not at you or what you said

But at myself


I was alone no more
LOL to those around me
who thought me to be a loser
Look at my friend list
500 + within days

My world was great
Life was a simple formula
LOL to those who wallow
Take me to be your example
I am LOL

Virtually I could be myself
hence my real world non-existing
If you can LOL here

Why stay crying there?
Be free

Freedom they say

Is the distance between

the hunter and its prey
Just another conversion
Albert Einstein

Did you just not?
I am too

on screen
Just on screen

Jerked away from my world

My provider throws me into this

I don’t understand as I LOL


time passes, few minutes turn to hours…

My LOL stood for SOS,

You couldn’t have known,
Neither did I,

But I now have figured it out
as I mention it in this last letter of mine.

Well O!!!
This is great, stepping into cyberspace for the first time,
Where dose reality stop and ultra egos take over?
How far do we run with it? And how far is far enough?
But hay, what do I know? LOL
Love your work,
Your friend (one of the 500+).

these are the signs of time and what time ,wow..
its ever changing could revel in your own self and chaste but you wont be free
as you say its letting go,abolish the distance between haunted and prey,and you will see
its like another vision opens to you..losing all not just virginity or self..but you gain lots lots more
its whole worlds open to you,you were alone ,now you run from whole lots of crowds
who want to join in this new escape and feeling of great relief of standing out to the whole world,so free
lovely write..
