unfriended, muted, blocked
unloved, avoided, ignored
unanswered, erased, deleted
it feels like a cool breeze on a hot summer-day

compared to that devastating hurricane
that hits you on a dull, normal, evening
after typing that IM
composing that e-mail
answering that last Whats-App
staring at that profile picture in Skype

hovering the cursor over that one name
which you still see in all your lists and
of which you know

will never appear as online again
