Overload

days full of time unused
scrolling down through minutes and hours
informations coming in
getting out
overload of sounds and images
I throw my phone away
slam my computer shut
get outside and play

heavy wind in my hair
racing against my heart
I close my eyes
and hear my loneliness
screaming for
an easy distraction
my 21st century’s addiction

steps taking me away
from any connections
I see I am not caught alone
in this net
of double edged swords
but I feel alone
fighting to get out
ashamed
of a problem
that shouldn’t be one

books open
blank pages filling up
electric light bulb
shining bright above
the only piece of technology
allowed in my room
the loneliness fades away
and my screens become
once again
the tools they were meant to be

  1. Mireille, this post is beautiful! I could identify with almost every single line, especially « I close my eyes / and hear my loneliness / screaming for / an easy distraction » could have come straight from my heart. I’m glad you decided to end it in a positive tone. ❤

    1. Thank you so much Monika! It means so much! I didn’t know I would have an impact with those words this morning when I was writing them, but I’m glad I shared them, glad to see that people relates to this more than I thought. Thank you for your words and for reading me!
