To sigh after a long story,
or to gasp when you hear something silly;
Two of the wonders you can’t do
if online chat is what you’re into.
Looking at the person in the eye
is a cute act you can’t deny,
But that would lose its magic
even with Skype as your sidekick.
How about his expressions, real time?
And to hold her hands as a pastime?
Things that are stripped away from us;
That’s what online communication does.
Not to mention the words genuine and sincere.
Now, it will be hard to know if something’s real.
