notification pops up
new messages appear
and a conversation with a stranger
switches into gear

at first you feel nothing
exchanging clever memes
then you start trading stories,
secrets, and dreams

as the conversation lengthens
less of a stranger he becomes
you look forward to hearing from him
you start twiddling your thumbs

and as the feelings begin
so does the anxiety and fear
that with the next text sent
a reply wont appear

and finally that happens
they become a ghost
tis our society for them to disappear
when you like them the most

will they ever reach out
you're left wondering, and then
notification pops up
new person, start all over again

Very well expressed Lizzie. This happened to me some years ago here on CP with couple of people now we call each other good friends, but through messaging and then emails. Although we've never met, but our friendships have grown stronger every day.

Enjoyed reading.
