Forget Communication

Impossibly speaking
it’s hard to understand

why you stare at your phone in your hand
disconnected from the present
physically here; mentally not present
wondering why
it’s easier that I
talk to you via a screen
I’m not trying to be mean
but what’s the purpose being face to face
why are you in this place
if I text would you answer
looking me in the eye can’t hurt
What can be done
to get your attention
I guess I just haven’t realized
that behind your glazed eyes
I’m not that important.
