That’s what we’ve reduced ourselves to.
50 likes, 5 pokes, 500 friend requests
500 faces you might never come face to face with.
5 hands you will never hold.
50 people who are locked behind a screen.
Can’t touch them, can you?
Can’t bury your face in their skin and inhale their smell
Can’t hear their voice first thing in the morning as you wake up,
Bet you don’t even know what color their eyes actually are.
That screen is no good for wiping your tears away
It doesn’t have Arms to hold you close through the night
Sure it can be there for you when you are lonely. But it can’t BE there.
Yeah. And then you wonder why you are lonely.
