You know the guy, classic goof, loves bad jokes. But has a copious amount of knowledge in, well, everything & they call the "parent" of the friendship group? I'm that guy

Dreams, come and go but ideas flow out this head of mine.

I'm a creator of worlds. I bleed to put words on a page. I dream of wondrous, creative and intelligent people, people I wish I knew. I reveal my true self to others, inner thoughts, hopes, dreams and values.

I fill screens with words, paper with ideas, and my head with dreams.
I write, and share with you.

"The Cloud"

PROMPT: The Unseen

4
"The cloud"
As though it doesn't exist

And it doesn't, does it
It disappears the moment the screen dies
Lost, in the abyss of nothingness
Only to be revived when you turn it back on

We turn our photos into ones and zeros
Stored in a storage box that doesn't exist
We listen to music made up of bits
Movies made of pixels
Letters without paper, ink spots, and messy fingerprints

It doesn't exist
None of it does
At least... not as we know it

To access the nothingness
We need something tangible
Something real

Wires crisscrossing the ocean floors
Sattilees thousands of miles above
Little black boxes down the hallway
Screens in every other corner

No-one seems to remember
Why would we remember all of this?
When it seems as untouchable, intangible
As a cloud in the sky?

    can definitely relate! used to think nothing of my phone's cloud until i lost all my photos from my phone and had to desperately search if they were backed up. they weren't so they're gone forever, but definitely made me more aware of our digital space now. nicely written!
