Boxed in a box

It's funny how all of them have become (or perhaps probably already were) one box in my screen with the fancy email id that hides the names and a green or red button at the top left corner (or sometimes even invisible). Of course, they peep out of that box once in a while to drop a "hey there". The appearance of my picture with along with their's in that tiny box is the only connection between them and me. Sometimes they fall silent while I keep staring at the oh-so-important box, waiting for the all so evident hint on the screen ~ "_______ is typing" something. It's silent words that are coming coded, encoded and decoded by the distance of miles or even a two inch wall. Sometimes when things hit really rock bottom - when the boxes say nothing at all, one gathers comfort at the very thought - they may not be talking to me but they are right there in that tiny blue box with a white screen...






I think I can officially be declared a happy loner!

but i thought if there are green and red bubbles on gtalk, one cannot be lonely. even if the boxes don't say anything.
*sigh*

Exactly. One is not. Therefore "happy loner".

it is safe to be lonely in the midst of people. all those audience whom you can willfully, even arrogantly, shut out, yet with the knowledge that they are away, but nearby...
