Imaginary Pals

A free verse poem about one of my ritualistic behaviours I’ve had since childhood

Listening to the same songs

and artists constantly

is like hanging out

with imaginary pals and family members

all day, all night, all week, all month

and all year.

Watching the same YouTube videos

with the same YouTubers

is like having a nice meal

with an imaginary pal

who I can actually mingle with

on the Internet.

Rereading my favourite stories

once in a blue moon

is like connecting

with old imaginary pals

I’ve not seen in a long time.

Playing the same digital games

I played during my youth

is like reliving old memories

and rekindling with old imaginary pals

I used to congregate and interact with virtually.

    Hearted , well written . Never thought of watching my favorite movies again as pal until I read your poem. ❣️

    You have definitely ignited many truths in this poetry along the way. Really well constructed and tells a tale that many of us can undeniably relate to today😊.
