Ghost in the Fog
A whisper that you’re not quite able to hear
A shadow that you’re not quite able to see
Such words describe friendships made online
Just when you think you know all there is to know
About someone, you find out just how wrong you are
We’re all just outlines; big gaps in our stories
We’re all just a mystery, a ghost in the fog
But isn’t that the same as in our real lives?
We only let people see part of the novel
What we have decided to share with one and all
But online, we can be whomever we choose
We might not reveal our true selves
Unlike in life, where we make personal contact,
Online it’s impossible to see the truth of a person
Now I’m not saying everyone's got something to hide,
I’m just saying there could be a surprise right around the corner,
We can't be sure!
