    I have to write 10 more lines in a poem, for homework. but i really dont know what to write, so maybe you can help me....

    the title is "Friends Without Faces"

    and here is the poem :

    We sit and we type, and we stare at our screens,
    We all have to wonder, what this possibly means.
    With our mouse we roam, through the rooms in a maze,
    Looking for something or someone, as we sit in a daze.
    We chat with each other, we type all our woes,
    Small groups we do form, and gang up on our foes.
    We wait for somebody, to type out our name,
    We want recognition, but it´s always the same.
    We give kisses and huges, and sometimes flirt,
    In mIRC we chat deeply, and reveal why we hurt.
    We do form friendships but why we dont know,
    Though some of these friendships, will flourish and grow.
    why is it on screen we can be so bold,
    Telling our secrets, that have never been told?
    Why is it we share, the thoughts in our mind,
    With those we cant see, as though we were blind?
    The answer is simple, its clear as a bell :
    We all have our problems, and need someone to tell.
    We cant tell "real" people, but tell someone we must,
    So we turn to the computer, an to those we can trust.
    Even though it is crazy, the truth still remains,
    They are Friends Without Faces, and have odd little names.

    any ideias???

    forget it, i´ve just wrote more 11 lines...

    Do you exist? Are we for real?
    Or is it just another deal-
    To keep us calm and unaware
    Of truth, that lurks where we don't dare
    To go, explore and see ourselves...
    I see your words, but hear no sound
    Are you still there, are you around?
    Who says you aren't just machine?
    Till now, you chose to be unseen.
    I just know you´re my e-friend
    And i dont care how this might end.

    Glad you found the words yourself...and yes, although we do not have faces to the words, your words still effected me as if you were here...thanks for sharing..big hugs,Jackie
  4. I don't see (Grrrrr) how anyone can DICTATE a poem of so and so many lines - I thought your first one was complete! But I'm glad you were able to "complete your assignment". I though your words were very, VERY insightful - speaks to the times, speaks about humanity and our penchant for wanting to communicate. Universal! I thought both (together) were REALLY good! (I'd give you an A+)
