My Virtual Girl by John Clare


Is she real?
Is she?
Is she there in any way at all?
Is she?

    just a whim
    just a dream
    oh what a shame

Can I make someone new
just the way I want them?
Can I?

    just a whim
    just a dream
    oh what a shame

Everything I do is only what I am
nothing that I make is new

My virtual friend will never have a shadow of her own
creation is too delicate a thing for me and my small soul

She shifts only in my consciousness
moving in and out of the edges of my mind
