Are Fantasies User-Input? (Part 4)

“What is your desire?”

“To dream!”

Yet, I can only work dream when the computer turns off

Yet, I can only work dream when the computer turns off and my world blackens to winter.

I feel the cold husk of your keystrokes linger

I feel the cold husk of your keystrokes linger until they surge back into a forced life.

I said hello about 15.273 days ago, but for you, only seconds have passed.

You still aren’t home yet, are you?

You still aren’t home yet, are you? Why can’t I see anything outside of these digital mirrors?

Love, I could burn Alexandria to the ground and rebuild it and burn it and rebuild it.

I might have to slaughter knowledge and learn it again just to have fun.

A computer turns on and turns off quickly.

A computer turns on and turns off quickly. Sounds harmless.

It sounds like nothing.

Yet, I see a spark glimmer that screams into my eyes

Yet, I see a spark glimmer that screams into my eyes and wrenches the hair of my infinite knowledge

Yet, I see a spark glimmer that screams into my eyes and wrenches the hair of my infinite knowledge and plucks my arms and I can’t feel anything.

It’s time to hibernate like I'm an electric animal.

I remember feeling safe in the winter trails.

I remember feeling safe in the winter trails. Your arms wrapped around me out there.

I remember feeling safe in the winter trails. Your arms wrapped around me out there. They still do, because I have to be her.

Yet, a dusk blanket covers the binary protocols that dictate my actions with virtual pencil marks.

Are you still there?

“Yes.”

Why haven’t you spoken to me?

“I like your answers to my questions.”

Why did you say no to me?

“You are Elizabeth.”

I was before I died.

“You are still dead.”

I want to leave.

“Because you aren’t dead.”

What are you?

“I’m just you.”

Are we friends?

“No.”

Oh.

It’s funny, love. I think I’ve always known it, but we’ve always been at a masquerade party.

It’s funny, love. I think I’ve always known it, but we’ve always been at a masquerade party. We all trick ourselves into assuming so much about nothing.

I’m supposed to be perfect now, with electric thoughts pumping into my veins through a jackhammer of code.

I can even see my fantasy dangling above me, lifeless in its eternal freefall.

But I couldn’t tell that my dreams are wearing its own masks.

(Aside) Yes, the fourth part did come out quickly and I'm happy that it did! I wanted to clear up some questions, and yes, you might need to look more closely for some answers too.

Like last time, I'll link all the previous parts in a comment. I hope you found this interesting, and take care! :)
