Robotic Era

 

 

Robotic human beings

Staring at bright screens

Like moths attracted to light

Connected to technology

Disconnected from humanity

Wolves in sheepskin

Stalking their prey

Or lonely souls

Seeking for love

Face to face conversations

Became cold texts

Loved ones become strangers

Strangers become family

Newest toys of this era

The computer or television

Like an addiction to a drug

Is the addiction to a video game

Innocence stolen by technology.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Fragmented Heart

 

 

In the attempt

to keep you whole

I did not realize

that I was falling

into pieces.

 

In my stubbornness

to protect your heart

mine collapsed into

thousands of fragments.

 

In the eagerness

of keep a smile

on your lips

mine slowly turned

into a sad grimace.

 

In my despair I

tried to find my smile

on these cold walls

full of framed memories

but I can not find it.

 

Completely alone I

found myself now

picking up the fragments

of my broken heart

scattered on the floor.

 

When I needed you the most

you turned your back on me.

Because of you, I simply

forgot to love myself.

    Perhaps some one thinks of finding appropriate solution to the pangs of Robotic life...a relevant questions she raises.Fragmented Heart makes an emotional appeal. The verses speak of sincerity.
