Hiding Behind a Keyboard

Sat, 06/28/2014 - 11:45 -- grimlk1
I can see you
feverishly stabbing away at your keyboard
the glare of the computer screen illuminating your countenance 
I can see you
creating an identity 
you are hiding
behind a screen, behind the lights, behind a name
 you are wearing a mask.....
you always have!
You are convinced you are sooooooooo clever
creating a false name
to break me down with hate.
I  am stronger!
And you......
are a weak hollow shell.
As empty as the words you blast me with.
As empty as your blank computer screen.
