As If

We live in a world where
one judges faces
with swipes and taps,
cancels memories
with a shallow touch,
and mutes presences
by archiving chats;

As if
Somehow to feel
relief.

(tell me –
where is the comfort
in that?)

  1. I agree, there is no comfort in that. I rarely use social media and I don’t like the way the digital world has changed our relationships with, and judgements of, other people. The impact on mental health is deep.
