by Jose Maria N. Ramos

The click and clack of the keyboard and
the mesmerizing window that is the screen
conspire to draw your consciousness into
the labyrinthine regions of cyberspace.

Once inside, your brain reels with infinite
options of delight, as your mind's eye
desperately tries to cope with the
rush of tantalizing information.

Images flash and colors explode to beguile
you to go deeper still, into the swirling
mass of sights and sounds, while you
lose your sense of time and space.

The hours fly by, and the clock stays still,
while you enjoy a film, a chat or anything
that maintains the subliminal euphoria
that that holds you under its sway.

Your telephone rings and breaks the spell.

You are back in your room.
