deafening silence

you know you can't stop yourself
from looking at your phone
take comfort in knowing
you are most certainly not alone
afraid you might miss out
on the next big thing
like someone's washing machine
just broke down
someone else got fantastic news
haven't told you what it is
someone can't beat the winter blues
though spring's just a few days in
you look again and realize
how many people you've lost touch with
how many people have lost touch with themselves
I understand now why so many
long to live off the grid
'cause if we keep on living like this
looking at our phones
as if they have all the answers
we will start to forget
what we were looking for in the first place
ironic an invention
designed for communication
would end up creating
such a deafening silence
