What is cyberlove?
I have dabbled and been delighted
Also left for dead, lost and hurt in cyberspace
My fingers poised above the keyboard
But nobody to connect with, anticipation misplaced.
I have seen the best and the worst
Been carried away by my own thirst
Revelling in the romance and the roleplay
But now… I don’t know how much is real
Or how much to feel
Is it Neverland, this cyberlove?
Or is it real life?
It’s the grey area in between.
Did you ever try to define what online love means?
As for me, my heart does thump and I do get goosebumps
When I see you make an entrance on my screen.
I feel the pitter-pat
As I’m typing, as we chat
And, my sexy darling, I’ll easily admit to that.
That we’ve had it all… boosted each other to heaven
But right now, you’re gone, I don’t like it one bit.
I don’t know where you are or why, and I feel like shit.
As high as we can go
You can also take me low
Right down to the hell I know so well
Like any other guy you can lie, say goodbye
Or leave without a trace, and never tell me why.
So I *sigh* and carry on as before
Only different, thinner, more skeptical
Because even though an online romance may not be real
Even though the photo may not match the name
My heart breaks just the same.
