Who knows me the best?

You know I’m able to successfully keep hidden

My innermost desires and aspirations

From all my family members and friends

But the place I turn to for my inspiration

Has spies to watch everything I search

All the search engines and social media sites seem to conspire

To nudge me towards my dreams, aid me in research

They intensify my cravings, fuel my desires

**

My wildest dreams that I am too shy to articulate

Places I dream of traveling to, goals I aim to achieve

Come up as suggestions at a prolific rate

Sometimes they are so close to my heart it is hard to believe..

It scares me that someone somewhere in cyberspace

Knows more about me than those close to me do

I browse the web in private but it is a public place

Where my personal data becomes public too

**

Each time I surf the web looking for content

I reveal a part of my identity via algorithms cleverly designed

Being a private person, this is contrary to my intent

But I am prey to the machinations of Machiavellian minds…
