Virtual Friends - Poem by Yasmeen Khan

They met in a world without matter
Behind the screens smile and simper
Share their joys, sighs and tears
Forgotten passions, misgivings, fears
Hand in hand yet never touch hands
Miles of distance, close they stand
Sacred secrets, secret thoughts
Woes and worries, tenderness fraught
With words giving voice to their dreams
Yet safely remains behind the scenes
Weird fondness never defined
Words work wonders in cyber confines
Wiping tears, curing hearts from afar
Trust and reliance work like elixir
Distance matters but it never does here
Perfect strangers friendship austere
Promises and vows may easily dissolve
No committals, musts or any oughts

Poet's Notes about The Poem

...as virtual Friendships are weird in their very nature.

    Long time ago when there was no virtual friends people know each other personally, however that was not very good, because friendship could turn into boring meetings, they picked on each others little faults and so on, but in this virtual world if someone do not like what we say, they do not have to answer. The world is getting larges, friendships are created by those who think alike even on the other side of the world. Every generation has a few people who will eventually understand the meaning of life and live in peace and true happiness in the middle of the world happenings and those bad things will never touch them.

    Virtual friends are real true friends
    In them the mutual nature blends
    San profile their feelings vibrate
    There is no need to dine and date.
