#Adieu (6/30)


For day six over at NaPoWriMo the challenge was to write a poem of farewell called a valediction. I had a different piece of writing in mind, but the words took a turn and transformed into this...




Will I miss my digital life when it passes away?

No more e-mail and social network notifications

bombarding me at all hours of the day.


No more quiet envy at the lives of others;

no ogling or coveting of women who I've never met

but have become intimate with via keystrokes

and mouse clicks.


Maybe the phantom vibration I feel on my thigh

will be the only reminder of the times when

140 characters sung me a bedtime lullaby

and awoke me to a new day.


Sure I'll mourn

but I won't shed a tear,

I'll just open a window, let in some fresh air and breathe.
