Virtual Paradise. - Poem by Fay Slimm

Alongside the real is the virtual world.
Paradise realised, now proudly unfurled.
A new race of people, brought by machine
Brightening lives by technology's dream.
Phantom-like friendships, developing by
Tenuous air-waves aloft in the sky.
Producing connections which always meet
With response, - this on-line, unseen retreat
From everyday life makes a life of it's own.
Brings magical change from being alone.
Spectral soul-mates can appear from thin air
Made by transmitted message wrought with care.
Virtual heaven appears on earth's scene.
Mirage's marriages, - never quite being
But moon-shine reality, yet they provide
Real feelings of love no-one can deride.
Miraculous virtual paradise
Invents a contentment - - but is there a price?

    Yup... there's always a price, Fay.
    If something seems too good to be true, it probably is!
    A masterly poem from one of Poemhunters' maestros.

    i juggle both worlds, though they are eons apart
    my poetry's in one that's close to my heart
    the other takes its toll, between work and subsistence
    i can slip between them without any resistance
    Thank you my online, switched on, cybermate! regards from the two of us
