Facebook and Cyberspace

“Be yourself, everyone else is already taken.”

Oscar Wilde

I post my poems on Facebook poetry sites,
and just recently due to a glitch in the
system I was unable to receive FB emails,
to engage with other poets with their
comments and replies. I wrote a little
scenario of this experience and how we
become so dependent on technology and
when it doesn’t work we appreciate it even
more when we suddenly are left without
it.

Facebook… you are a wonderment of

the internet. Where else could one
go to have their poems posted among
so many selected other’s?

But I have been away for a while, since
you cut me out of poetic cyberspace.
Because of your glitch have I been
put on the bottom of your list?

Being off the circuit of words has
questioned the theme I post. It
seems that love and romance is
the most well received. The
ravishingly words of erotic touch,

that brings about exhilarating
feelings. Of lovers gone astray
looking for others to fill their
longings.
But then I excitedly see new websites
of spirituality coming aboard, which
seems to blend within my reasoning.

Does it just take time to get back
in the circle? What drives people
to read a poet’s books? My books
have only received a few five star
reviews.

I wonder how people get so
many followers? I have only one,
I’m not sure who it is, maybe one
that can relate to abuse,
abandonment and deliverance,
perhaps not the most popular
topic.

I try but the words just don’t come
out right, so I’ll just keep posting
the gift of words given to me, in
hopes that just one visitor will
stop by my sight, leaving a comment
to which I can reply. And of course
I’ll do the same for them. So FB, I’ll
wait for you to return to help me
respond…

And thank you Sean Thomas, for your
word ‘Awesome’ you don’t know
how that word gave me a glimmer
of hope to continue on!

“Fill your paper with the breathings
of your heart.”

William Wordsworth
