She sits alone in a darkened room Walled off from the world and it's woes The only light a strange glow From the screen before her Which is filled with a jumble of Letters Words Punctuation. Seeking searching questing Another soul to meld with On a human level In the mind And finding many In need of a friend as she is A world filled with lonely people each clinging To a keyboard, crying out for Someone! Anyone! To reach out to them through the modem And touch them if only for a moment In time. And some of those cries are answered And some are never heard And she continues to sit in her darkened room Reaching across the void of cyberspace To her friends.
