Lurking in the deep, dark depths

of cyberspace

persistently they, for the moment wait

to pounce, pummel and pulverize –

barb in each word

venom in every phrase

finding release of emotions constrained

without a concern for grace –

only to slink slyly away

into the midnight shade of a subterranean life

leaving a DELETE or UNFRIEND

a BLOCK command in their wake

intention not to connect and unite

but with poisonous words to divide.
