Internet users fears, hopes, and fantasies are the material for this search engine-inspired poetry.

While you could just look at Google's autocomplete feature as a helpful tool, there are those that have come to view every suggestion as its very own line of prose – which when combined, result in funny, absurd, and occasionally deeply moving poems.

Founder Sampsa Nuotio, and curator Raisa Omaheimo started a blog called Google Poetics to collect these “Google Poems” back in October 2012.

While you might expect the majority of poems to be a jumble of random phrases, they actually provide a unique insight into people searching the web. After all, the previous searches were made by actual people all around the world, some of whom ask Google questions like: “why am I alone?” and “why do fat girls have high standards?”
