Several years back I was on one of the online dating sites. Yes - even us artists occasionally go even more insane and think we can find true love - or true like - online. It never worked out for me, but I did enjoy writing on the blog site of this particular dating site. I wasn't alone. Somehow a core of really good writers happened to come together there, and though I didn't match up in person, I found many friends I would love to have known through their writings.
Here's a little poem I posted back then:
... a peer, a mate, a match
who'll know the wonder I've become.
a friend to see the best
and overlook the rest of me... to kiss
my neck and touch my soul, to love not parts -
but all, the whole -
the sum of me who yearns for bliss
but all I find are words like this:
and solitary time.
- Patrice Lynne Young - around 2007 I think..
