Friends Without Faces

Ursula pointed out this charming poem which Dischordia posted on the Swords of Sacrifice Message Forum:

Friends Without Faces

We sit here and we type, and we stare at our screens
We all have to wonder, what this possibly means.

With our mouses we roam, through rooms in a maze
Looking for something or someone, as we sit in a daze.

We chat with each other, we all type our woes
Small groups we do form, and gang up on our foes.

We wait for somebody, to type out our name
We want recognition, but its always the same.

We give kisses and hugs, and sometimes we flirt
In ICQ we chat deeply, and reveal why we hurt.

We do form friendships - but - why we dont know
Sometimes these friendships, will flourish and grow.

Why is it we share, the thoughts in our mind
With those we can't see, as tho we were blind.

The answer is simple, its as clear as a bell
We all have our problems, and need someone to tell.

We can't tell real people, but tell someone we must
So we turn to the 'puter, and to those we can trust.

Even though it is crazy, the truth still remains
We are friends with out faces, with odd little names.
