Is it possible to find a true relationship on the internet? Can you really connect with someone on a meaningful level via twitter?
Two days ago, I would have said no. Today, as I sit here missing my friend, I feel I must reconsider.
Perhaps it is the safety one finds in anonymity. Perhaps it is the security of knowing that distance is insurmountable. I only know that while he is out of contact, I feel like I have lost someone dear.
Maybe it was the alcohol, or maybe it was the knowledge that he would be gone that allowed him to take liberties. Maybe he was just playing with me.
Me? I wanted to kiss him and hold him and gently rub his aching tummy.
I know I shouldn’t be such a weepy old thing. I’m sure he had more important things on his mind than his twitter buddy.
Good byes are so hard, so unsettling. I wanted so much more but what can you attain with words only? Cold, impersonal? No, not really. Satisfying? No, not really.
