This machine isn't you

This machine isn't you
it isn't alive
without you, there's nothing left on this machine
this machine I relied on to keep me connected
to people who aren't nearby
but it was all some kind of electronic illusion
close in spirit, far away in reality
we've been apart the whole time
left enclosed in our own minds, just reaching out
or trying to
I've been typing here in my own rooms the entire time
reading words and dreaming lovely dreams
and throwing my world out into the wind
or on the wires
on my own
no one forced me to bleed all over the keys!
but somehow I wanted to
on my own, I wished for you
and waited and hoped for more past the time I should have
and now I'm left with an unsettled feeling
as I try to disconnect
because there's no reason for me to be on this machine now
the machine isn't you
and I don't know what to do with myself during these times
I used to write and dream lovely dreams for you
