I like adding life to lifeless lives that is why I cannot do without creative writing, because it is a way of touching some hopeless lives

1. She met with him on

The internet, their relationship grew

Through exchange of mails and

Photos, for that is the

Desired means of communication on site


2. A day could not pass

Without each of them exchanging

Messages to each other they

Tell themselves of each day’s

Activities and developments about themselves


3. Sometimes they will stay long

On the internet, exchanging emails

And photos, telling each other

What each is doing at that

Instant in time in the world.


4. Their regular meeting time has

Been known to each other

For her, it is time she has

Gotten home from work, while

For him it is his break time


5. In case each person at

The other part of the globe

Is not on line, the partner

Would be disturbed, restless, thinking

What could have been the problem.


6. When the expected partner comes

On board, the first message

Is usually brief and it is

Apologetic in nature followed by

Detailed report of what cause delay


7. This has been the procedure

For weeks and months and

They felt things need to

Change, for they had dwelt

Long enough on that phase


8. She has informed her grandmother

Because her parents and siblings

Had all died in a terrible

Accident few years back, leaving

Her to be brought up by grandma


9. Her grandmother approves of the

Person who is given her granddaughter

Immeasurable joy and laughter daily

And hopes they would happily

Live together ever in the world


10. One day, grandmother calls her

Granddaughter and tell her what

Has been bothering her heart,

And what was bothering her

Heart was her internet relationship

11. Though she has been happy

Meeting on the line with

The guy, has shown her

His photos, but things need

To change she said to her


12. During our days, nothing like

Internet, seeing is believing was

What we practiced, even those

Who became engaged through photos

Of spouses would see the partner later


13. “When would you both of

You meet in real life?”

Grandmother asks her daughter. She

Sighed we would have met

But for the oceans of separation


14. Well, oceans of separation have

Been overtaken and brushed aside

By the internet, it shows

The person is existing in

The world nay another planet


15. You must advance over this

And arrange for your real

Life meeting else, all this

Joy would flew off and

Relationship Dies within short time


16. Discussed she with her internet

Lover and he approves they

Need to meet, but his

Work can barely sustain him

Not to talk about traveling


17. For crossing the oceans and

Seas to get to her

He would need lots financial

Muscle to overcome that, but

On self-examination cannot afford that


18. She decided to bell the

Cart because she does not

Want to lose him, no not

Ever. She informed her grandma

Of the development grandma was elated


19. But the albatross is how

To go about this, she told

Grandma. Grandma told her she

Needs traveling documents to be

Able to cross oceans and seas

20. She started making inquiries into

This trip, but was shocked

To discover that she could

Not get papers directly to

Her lover’s country from her’s


21. The ambassador of her lover’s

Country does not grant such

Papers to enter their country

Much so that they met

On the internet, nay physically.


22. She was devastated on hearing

This. Told grandma, who comforted

Her. The lover too was

Saddened on hearing the development

And thought it was over


23. She would not give in

Decides to seek for alternative

Means of entering lover’s country

And was told of the

Option, going through multiple channels


24. She will have to go

Through a nearby country and

From there to another to yet

Another from where she would

Possess papers to enter lover’s country.


25. She considered it better than

Never, told her lover of

The good news and he

Was glad to hear it.


26. Applied for leave to travel

Was granted leave after two

Weeks and she began her

Trip to the unknown country

By going through neighboring country.


27. From this country she applied

For tourism visitation to another

Country, there she makes further

Advancements to another country as

She travels through air there


28. In the country where she

Gets to, it is by sea

That she could move to

The next country, she applied

For this and was granted


29. Through the sea she traveled

To the neighboring country.

In the ship she encountered

Pirates but was delivered from

Their hands finally got off ship.

30. Internet wasn’t good, but she

Manages to send messages to

Her partner to tell him

That she was on the

Way and should be expecting


31. If she would go by

The air, to the next

County, she may likely not

Be granted papers, but she

Could go by the road


32. The road though is risky

Full of kidnappers, thieves and

Sometimes terrorists could be on

Rampage she was told by people

Of the country she gets to


33. It is very risky a trip

And was strongly advised to

Go back to her country

By the people of that country

Who told her of the option


34. Going back is not an

Option she replied them, having

Gotten this far, I wish

To continue with the trip

She emphatically stated to ‘em


35. Are people like me who

Are not ghosts passing through

The road to the county? She

Asks and she was told that

People do go by road


6. Those who go, go under

Heavy security, which they paid

For, and they move in

Group, they do not move

Individually, she was told


37. That would be okay by

Me, would wait till when

They would be moving and

Move with them. Returned to

The Christian guest house waiting

Thieves attacked but she was

Not within the premises when

They struck she was being

Chauffeured round the town

If not for cashless policy

She would ‘ve lost money too

Trip and took off with

Others for her lover’s country.

Are, and said it would

Take 3 days to get to him

Hours, the operators told her

That it was 24 hours already

Attempted the line yet to

Be operational, got on the

Road again and headed for park

        Beautiful and excellent story. I kept anticipating something would go wrong and she would not make it to him. But it ended up good with them getting married. That would make a cute movie. My parents are old fashion. Woman could not travel by alone. Today women travel all over the world. Great Romantic Story
