Virtual Eyes

When I'm looking at you, I see
Through façades, past all of your lies;
You've become transparent to me,
For I look through virtual eyes.

Google, Facebook, LinkedIn and blogs
Show a person you cannot hide;
Emails, archives, mobile phone logs:
Telling truths about which you've lied.

Data mining multiplies these:
Programs mix and match and conclude
Things the human eye never sees,
Thus to sunder your solitude.

Where amidst this data are you?
Does this knowledge make me more wise?
Many views emerge, old and new:
Facets seen by virtual eyes.
