Social Addiction

Time. What time is it?

I press on the lock button and see a notification .

Soon I find myself down a tunnel of swipes, double taps, commenting , and conversation starters.

My mind, my thoughts are all now full of those questions and comments left on others. Unsure if those people might take em in a wrong way, if they might just read em and laugh , or if those people just see me as another comment. I lock my phone awaiting the response of a person.

Wait. Time. What time is it?

I look up and see how much I’ve missed due to the consumption of social media.

The only thing I can hear now is just one word.


Everything at a balance.
