I need a friend...

my screen lights up - my face lights up!

I reach across, through the desktop, reaching out for a heart

I come up empty

I come up with binary

my fingers, dripping with blood, from my own heart torn, wanting nothing more than to push, push against your heart until our bloods run together in love

-but in vain

in darkness.

Brightness shines through my closed eyelids now,

blinding, and I open -

have I seen the light?

God? Zeus?

eyes open!

Text message. No, wait - tweet.

I've seen the light.
