3. Of modern love

A pop alert: you’ve got a mail.

A blink on the answering machine
A sms. A missed call.
Few offliners on the messenger.
They blaringly state
That you thought of me, that you missed me!
Oh! What would we do without these contrivances?
How will we air, our real and imagined grievances?
Or lovingly express, all that we feel…
While you stay yonder,
On the other side of the world
And our hearts grow fonder
In bits and bytes, do we reveal
Secrets that,  from others, we conceal.

  1. The march of technology is quite frightening and what would many of us do without it? I wonder!

    Nice intoduction and beautifully written second stanza.

  2. What would we do? We would feel frustrated or actually have to speak in person! Thank heavens for these contrivances 🙂

  3. I love the happy irony of posting this here, knowing your bits and bytes are floating about in cyberspace to be read by other cyberpoets!
    Nice work!

  4. the last para was awesome!!! 😀 Kudos

    While you stay yonder,
    On the other side of the world
    And our hearts grow fonder
    In bits and bytes, do we reveal
    Secrets that, from others, we conceal.
