About the Poem

I wrote this poem for two friends I've never met, who at the time had not met each other either. And still, they loved. I've met many others since then who fell in love on the Internet, but these two were the first for me. Two people in love. Two people who had never seen each other's face.

They were separated by a real-world ocean, but brought together by a cyber sea.

Cyber Seas

Nomadic sailors set adrift,
Faceless names in failing ships,
Endless paths through endless seas,
Sailing through infinities.

Two bows brush in darkest night,
Two hands touch in briefest flight,
Two souls meet unwittingly,
Small islands in a cyber sea.

A lantern lit by dual consent,
A ray of light both never meant,
Small beacon few can understand,
In search of welcome distant land.

Two boats joined in single ship
By hearts upon a common trip,
No longer faceless entities,
One island in a cyber sea.

I loved this poem It hits the very heart of me
Tara
This poem is incredible. It describes perfectly the ache of being apart and the final reward of a long-awaited uniting. Falling in love over the internet is the hardest love of all, because of distance, but sometimes it is the best, because you fall in love with the person as they are, veil-free.
