Lost in losing.

cry for help: unheard

you were so busy scrolling

mom. she needed you.

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 fotolia.com.

From last course: Bestow, please.

    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

    By the way I didn’t know this course started since I didn’t get any of the emails directly in my inbox, it went to ‘promotion’ and ‘social’part and I just checked it 😦
