Typing and unaware
of everything around her.
So engrossed in the wrong conversation.
Technology taking away her eye contact
as the relationship is falling apart.
So plugged in
yet zoned out,
trying to find a community
in all the wrong places.
Living in the virtual world
when reality is passing her by.
Missing the moments that truly matter
while checking the status of her friends.
Drama drawing her in,
taking selfies of her last happy hour,
and forgetting the smile right in front of her.
How many times does she turned away
when he just wants to show her something?
How many moments does she pretend to listen
when he sings her a cute little song?
When does she exist in any instance
where her device does not get in the way?
What’s more important:
or showing love to your child?
