I Ponder

Isn’t amazing

that we can meet and

know the deepest thoughts

and fears

and loves

and beauty

of someone across the world

without ever knowing their true name

or even what they look like

Their voice

becomes the words and writer’s style

The judgement and stereotypes

melt away

and turn into reading between the lines

to truly judge if they are worthy

of clicking the follow button

I wonder

I ponder

Which is better?

Face to face

we not might give them the time of day

but

looking at a screen

we give them our deepest selves

but hide what everyone sees.

How simple it would be to make my escape – I’ve already come up with three different routes – but I decided to give them the benefit of their capture. It’s not like my criminal record was very clean to begin with, anyway.

The events that led up to my arrest began at my house, sometime after midnight. I wasn’t expecting much to happen tonight; freshly showered and cozy in clean red flannel pajamas, all I wanted to do was curl up in bed with the English assignment due at the end of the weekend. I even took…
