Virtual LoveFinger hovering over his computer mouse,Virtual Love16 hours ago in Free Verse More Like This
Comfortably settled in an empty house.
Her smiling face framed by gushing comments,
The "Send Friend Request" button a source of constant torment.
With a rush of fear and a deep sigh,
He clicked the button: his end was nigh.
Would she delete the request and simply move on,
Or lambast him for being such a moron?
Boop! A notification on her phone lock screen.
That friend request which couldn't be unseen.
A swipe of her finger and deft click,
New notification: Kate is now friends with Nick.
"Hi! How's it going? Remember me?
We met at Hannah's house party"
"Oh yeah! You were the guy with the cute shirt"
Gosh, why aren't there lessons in how to flirt?
Awkward messages turned to poke warfare,
Their nauseating online PDA was sending people spare.
With each and every date, a step closer to sex,
Which was solicited with a cringe worthy text.
As couples all too often do,
Their love turned to virtual gloom.
A poke did not suffice when she needed an embrace

In front my head
Slobber I do
Start after it, yes
Forever out of reach
I bark and slobber more
To be ever unsatiated.
But ever out of my reach
I want to love him
But he's ever distant
Just out of reach
Of my arms and
Of my heart
