Chat Love - Poem by Jay P Narain

The cyberspace has opened many new avenues,
You click here and there and find what you want,
Here I find an instant friend thousands of miles away,
her handle ID is different than her real name,
I even don't know who is she and what she looks like,
She may be a he, she may be a teenager or even an oldie.

The chat begins with truncated cryptic messages,
sometime a message like see you tom,
sends my head spinning whether she is even chatting with me,
Sometimes requests for sal or asl makes me confused,
I think I am talking to some medical doctor.

The chat goes on for hours and hours,
I type a long question with my two slow fingers,
the reply comes like ya, i.c, y, or lol,
with a complaint that I am too slow for chat.

With time the formalities disappear,
I see signs of love appearing in messages,
sometimes messages carry deep emotions like i m n luv w u,
sometimes I see the tear down the eyes with i m brd n lnly,
sometimes it seems that the chat love will last for ever with wt dnt go,
sometime it seems that my chat love will disappear in deep blue yonder with c ya agn.

After a long chat, my yearning to meet my love intensifies,
My heart wants to see some one close to me,
Holding my hand and sharing my feelings,
But when I turn off my IM, my chat love disappears into eternity.

    It is an amazement the way computers have made the world a smaller place. We can feel close to people we would otherwise know nothing of. My husband and I met in chat, so indeed real relationships can grow out of those words shared on a computer screen. (Report) Reply

    Oh my friend,

    You are so right...It has become a tradition for those who chats to ask such questions and for those who aren't aware of this will eventually end up, confused...Nicely written....That's the truth, the cyber world indeed a crazy one! ! !

    With lots of best wishes,
