When Being Connected Leaves You Disconnected
Modern Day Romance
I'll say please, if it pleases you,
thank you - to be polite.
As we rummage round the living room,
ignoring things unsaid last night.
Pretending to be busy,
rushing through another day.
Looking at each other,
with nothing new to say.
I don't like the confrontation,
you don't like the backing down.
So, we avoid one another,
neither wants to make a sound.
It just might stir communication,
we've both unofficially, called it off.
Walking around, uneducated therapists -
proclaiming what we know, and stuff.
To keep the game alive,
no-one wants to walk away.
But we are cold to how we're feeling,
feelings- just get in the way.
So, could you please keep your opinions,
it's ok, let me alone.
Thank you for your understanding,
get back to living on your phone.
