You don't have time and so

You're fading slowly from my life

Messages left hanging

Like smoke rings in cyberspace

But the fading is masked

By a feeling of liking and being liked

Which I tend to persist in

Because you still 'like' my stuff

As I do yours

And that seems to be a close enough equivalent

We play along, humoring each other

As if it were just like the good ‘ole days

Sustaining our denial that this clandestine decay

Is even happening

It's more convenient this way

And softer on the ego.

Whatever will be will be. If its true it shall stay, if its false, it shall decay. May it be true for both of you.
