Technological Love

There was once a p-r-o-g-r-a-m called
L-O-V-E
We both were securely
c-o-n-n-e-c-t-e-d to it.

Technology kept us together
While we were miles apart
Constantly in touch
Whenever required

Slowly
Steadily
With the course of
T-I-M-E
Emoticons replaced Emotions
I could no longer remember how my name
S-o-u-n-d-s
when your lips utter it.
Because the few decibels received through phonelines
Are N-o-T-H-I-N-G
compared to you whispering it in my ear.

Technology kept us together
like Robots
Programmed to type things
things
humans o-u-g-h-t to feel
may w-a-n-t to feel
w-o-u-l-d have felt
if
the other human graced them with physical presence
compared
to a few hundred lines of binary

Technology
Kept us apart
Two humans
Typing away
Unable to say the things
they are t-r-u-l-y feeling
Instead
they r-e-l-a-y-e-d messages
keeping in mind.
timezones,schedules, & workloads

We parted ways.
Went away.
Miles apart.
Still had your i-m-a-g-e
in my heart
Oh!
What is Love and its delights
Farewells and Goodbyes through sattelites…

But technology
with its games and tricks
and codes and binary
In a few clicks
Made me a distant memory

You never realised when

This heart turned into hardware

The love into a software

The emotions into a virus

A virus that the anti virus

e-x-t-e-r-m-i-n-a-t-e-d

Every
Single
Time

Technology
Displaced love
Misplaced love
finally
Replaced love

Turned Love into one,
of the millions of Applications,
Dowloaded in the phone
For instant grattification
+few moments of joy.

There was once a robot
Securely connected to a Server
The server that it aimed to serve for life.

But the Server shut it out.
Blocked the connection.

Eventually

The program
c-r-a-s-h-e-d
The rythmic beating
s-t-o-p-p-e-d
The hardware
b-u-r-n-e-d
The software is
O-b-s-o-l-e-t-e
New Versions available Online.

However,
One day.
Eventually.
The Server came back
O-N-L-I-N-E
The robot was no where close
to the lover
he had left
B-E-H-I-N-D
For
Technolgy should be applied to
Love…
Instead
Love
was applied to Technology
