Reader. Writer. Romantic.

Social Media

She lives her life in images and status updates
She clings to the words of her favourite celebrities
Her emotions are defined by her ships
And her career by her connections

She lives her life on a screen
She doesn’t know what it’s like to live
To feel true warmth
Not the burn of an artificial, electronic intelligence
On her lap

Love is between characters of her ship
Something she has decided is not for her
But how can she say that
When the experience she feels
Aren’t her own

Media connects us
But disconnects us from what is most important

Would you rather watch your child grow and learn in your arms?
Or read about it off a screen?
