    I live here in a world
    created by gigabytes
    and RAM speeds

    my block is defined by how
    fast I can access information
    at times transmit
    emotions with itty bitty icons
    that tell folks
    how I'm feeling or how I feel
    about them....

    I live here on this internet
    community with friendships
    bonded by images on screens
    that convey my
    authenticity / my humanity

    I come out of my house
    to say "hello how ya doing"
    "take care" and
    "talk to you later"

    even though I have not met
    or talked to my friends...

    fiber optics is magnificent
    I can tell who is heaven sent or
    just plain no good by the vibe
    that travels from miles away
    and looks at me from across
    my monitor

    I live here / I come here
    everyday spend two
    three maybe four hours
    on end just to connect with you
    in our absence /

    sometimes it seems as if
    I just sat down with my friends
    the other day shooting the breeze
    and chatting about "whatever"
    over cold glasses of Faygo Redpop

    and just talked until the street lights
    came on and just like in our yesterdays
    went on inside with the anticipation
    of talking to you again tomorrow.

    **this is a little rough, but it will be tightened up
    soon.

    Blak...

    how can you tighten up sumthin that's already tight?
    I like the raw, true emotion that comes across in these words.
    You might lose that if you "doctor" it up too much. But hey, that's only my opinion. You know u one of my favs, brotha!:)
