Although this poem was inspired by a very good friendship I have built over the internet, it attempts to depict how digitalization has changed the structure of relationships.
Instant messenger, facebook, blackberries have changed it all to an extent where we feel connected to people we don’t even know.

I have found it What describes then An idea’s birth After its travel through the subconscious. ‘Suddenly’ it breaks on me Often wondered, nay questioned My cause for forbearance Now I know.
