Justin W. Price, AKA PDXKaraokeGuy, is a freelance writer, blogger, and award-nominated author based out of Juneau, Alaska.

Here's a song i started several years ago. I've revised it a bit and placed it here. It may or may not be the final draft!




Source

CyBuurr Love = BroKN <3



Control. alt. delete.
automatically sign on
Hold down and repeat.


Type a few phony words:

“I’m a doctor, I’m six feet tall,

My name is Brian, No baby,

I only do this with you.”

Send some emoticons.


Lose the will the live with a power surge!



Electronic and digital
This enhancement to my ego.
Maybe it's true.
It's amazing what we Skype.


Copy. Print. Paste
Save it to my archive,
To Ponder another day.

Read a few phony words:

“You’re handsome. I’m a model,

I’m not wearing anything, that pic?

Yes, of course that’s me.”

Smile and blush.


Lose the will to live with a power surge!

Electronic and digital
This enhancement to my ego.
Maybe it's false.
It's amazing what we Tweet.

      Great job! Since we are all on the computer, we can all relate. "It's amazing what we Tweet." ... and that we never show our feet!

      Loved it.

      Voted up, awesome, and interesting.

      Thanks a lot Midnight Lights. I don't know that I care enough about this poem to further revise it, but I too don't think it's quite done. Thanks so much for input and thanks for stopping by!

      I can relate to this.. it's not funny ... good job, but I think it just needs a little more. But you did mention it may not be the final. I would actually LOVE to hear a song on the radio about this topic... People have no idea what they are getting themselves into.. I am living proof the internet is full of creeps creeping and scamming women and men alike.

      Very unique and technically adept poem here PDX, this one is a classic for you, and it will go down in hubpages history book for sure, as one of the weirdest yet funny kinds of poems people tend to come up with from time to time. Cool technique!

      Voted up and you know the rest budd.

      Fun lyrics Justin

      I used to chat to a friend online, he was actually a friend of a friend. But he had met his wife on a dating site. She came over to new Zealnd to marry him but didn't settle here so went back to the states, taking their 6 yr old daughter with her.

      The same guy actually asked me once what I would do if he was stood in front of me butt naked. I told him exactly what I would do and believe me it would have been excruciating. He was straight off my friends list

      you only attract people who has the same emotional level as you do...when you're desperate, desperate people will be hovering all over you, the mind has a way of attracting the things you hate, love etc...i've tried opening to a guy once it ended me almost getting scammed...sigh...

      b. Malin, people lie when you meet them face to face. how much more so when they have the anonymity of cyber space?

      Ruby, don't I know it. Met my ex wife in cyber space :-)

      You just never know for sure. People lie. I'm with Martie on this subject. Don't get too personal. Don't look for love in cyber space....

      Really Funny Hub...Clever with a lot of Truth between the lines...I used to date a Lawyer, who when he called would ALWAYS ask,"what are you wearing"? Eventually I realized he was a JERK and I stopped seeing him. This was of course BEFORE Cyber Space took over.

      Martie, indeed. I wrote this with tongue firmly in cheek. It's a sad tale that happens a lot, but it's also not as tragic or dramatic as this poem would suggest. Then again, maybe it is...

      Will. lol. But it's true. i read a book recently about internet sex stings. very interesting.

      poetvix, I agree with you, A student in my poetry workshop recently wrote a poem about the Ipad and one of the lines in the poem was "More addictive then sex, more mind bending then acid." Thank you for reading and commenting!

      And if she says she's 14, she's probably a big, hairy cop! They're on-line too, looking for perverts.

      With webcam and Skype it is not so easy to fool around in CyberSpace. But still, falling in love with a person who lives on the other side of the world is certainly the beginning of a heartbreaking experience. Rather maintain a safe distance by not allowing private e-mails. This poem of yours is a pretty sketch of fooling around in cyberspace, but not of serious love found in cyberspace and all its consequences.

      Snakes, duly noted, but couldn't you lying?
