Blocked and unblocked; befriend and unfriend
We -- she and I -- practice, in the name of
'Self-control' -- the Victorian virtue ---
The virtue of mediocrity!
But, the more we attempted to separate ourselves,
The closer we approach -- secretly-inwardly.
She looks up my ID -- public, me to her,
Known, her one -- only friends.
As we two exercise it over and again,
Zuckerberg never forgets to take the pain.
He suggests me her -- my beloved -- to make my list,
And her the same, I do know.
My heart-felt thanks to 'Him' for the session--
We need to keep ourselves far to fulfill the mission.
What people, virtually, know (not know) is their discern,
Our souls do know it's just a virtual separation.
