Distracted

Standard

I wrote this poem about people who are more tuned in to their electronic devices than to the human beings who are right in front of them.

 

Distracted

 

Eyes far away, glazing

Attention diverted to

Electronic “friends”

Devices to escape

Your reality

Even when it’s right

In front of you

Breathing, talking

Alive and responding

 

In front of you

Never really hearing

Not really seeing

Eyes retreating,

Losing Concentration

diverted to something else

Designed to quicken

communication

Hindering ours

Gasping for air

Swallowing us in solitude

Even when we’re together

 

Especially when

We’re together…

you’re tuned out
