The Internet Romance

by Alicja Kuberska

He awakened hope inside her, and she believed in a lucky lot.
Once again, she felt beautiful, desirable - the contemporary Queen of Sheba.
For her, the flowers bloomed in the Hanging Gardens of Babylon,
Roses diffused their intoxicating perfume, and the nightingales sang at night.

The stars foretold happiness, the moon plated her dreams with silver.
In the mornings she would find a cup of coffee in the online chat,
And a magnificent bouquet of flowers with an attached love letter.
Magic carpets fell at her feet, and silks enveloped her.

He left without a word, melted into the ether like every mirage.
She awoke when he sent a bill for the time they spent together
