Poem: Monologue 00.00.002

Exactly 10 minutes after midnight
I’m waiting for you to log on
The chat that brings happiness,
contentment. For the next hour
Before I go to sleep
That vapourised steamed milk in the mug
My antidote to cure insomnia
I count the clock ticking, patiently
My confident augmented as we talk
Though we haven’t met – face-to-face!

    It’s amazing what friendships we can build up with online friends. And it’s even more wonderful that when we finally do meet face to face that it is such a pleasure (I always expect it to be awkward. It never is).

      Hi Pooky. Thanks for your comment. I truly appreciate it. I’m writing based on what I feel. In reality, some didn’t. Recently, there’s a girl was murdered by her Facebook male friend after their one-to-one meeting. It’s really sad. Just have to be careful & alert.

        Oh wow – that’s incredibly sad.

        It’s under investigation now…May her soul rest in peace and that criminal deserves for what he’d done.
