Behind the Handle

I’m thinking of the person behind the handle,
the face behind the avatar,
The thought behind the tweet.
Trying to build an image,
A brand,
A persona.
Is she really that slutty?
Is he really that thirsty?
is their life as they potray?
140 characters,
A chance to share
To show the world who you are
No,
Who you want them to think you are.
The perfect mask.
Bruce Wayne, Clark Kent,
Hidden identity. Perfect.
But when the worlds collide,
Virtual meets real.
Secrets are revealed.
Fingers, Phones, Fucks
Friends traded for followers,
Dames for DMs.
Lives are built, many brought down.
The power of the 40 plus a hundred,
The handle, the key,
Behind it…
Me.
