needed_raHaiku #14 ~ Written in response to writing challenge 201: write a poem about/against/in homage to the screens in your life using alliteration somewhere in 5-7-5 format. They used the words ‘addictive, comforting, inescapable’ for its glow. I’ll add destructive, distancing, and definitely depressing to it. Image via

From last course: Bestow, please.

  4. It’s quite heartbreaking – it certainly does not suck. I know you have “mom” on the last line because of the syllables for each line, but the fact that it’s there makes it all the more powerful. Good stuff!

    • Thank you, Sonya! It was after I had written this that I realized how badly I wanted to write it.
      (The other one I had in mind was about a ‘dad’ who missed spending time with his daughter for she had gotten too busy socializing via screens.)πŸ™‚ I am so glad you stopped by and liked this! x
