The modem works all through the night
Connects to another world—
Call of virtual reality, when reality scares!
I sit and wait,
galore of chat rooms speed past
No real names, no identities revealed,
Life on a different mode here.
Black fonts dance on the screen,
Waiting to be heard. I switch
To another site, on Vedic astrology.
The World Wide Web knows it all,
The secrets of destiny and human heart
Time frozen, yet diffused
a paralytic hypnosis.
This web, entangled
grasps me
Stuck in its abyss
I grope amidst dream and reality.
