I am not a shadow

nor an invention

nor a character created

for a virtual life

to inhabit scenarios

of make-believe

role play

and pretend.


I am not a projection

a fantasy

a construction

of someone

I would like to be.


I am not just

an avatar

I am corporeal

of flesh and blood

a heart that pumps

a mind that thinks.

A hunger

that burns.


And if I should play

a game

in any way

in any context

it is always

for real.

    Your poetry from years ago corresponds to mine in the present. If this is not synchronization then it’s truly magic alignments from the universe!
