Virtual Life

I notice more and more people sitting in front of computer screens, and they don't connect with people. This is a poem that I wrote about on the subject.

Virtual Life
People glare at a speechless screen,
Ignoring those around,
Tap, tapping away.
Waiting for response from faceless words,
They gaze thoughtlessly
As the world around them revolves.
They do not realize the speed of life.
Interaction with flesh is sparse.
People claim they live,
But they just sit, mindlessly clicking,
Only a virtual life exists, suspended.

  1. I am ironically reading faceless words. But I try to balance the virtual with the real. Sometimes I want to escape the real for the virtual, but on a morning like today, real will do just fine!
