It holds my attention hostage with mindless scrolling.

When I try to free myself,

Alerts buzz, calling me back.

Scroll,

Swipe,

Send.

Notifications keep my eyes glued to the screen.

My thumbs running marathons across the six inch space.

Text,

Tweet,

Match,

Play.

My captor keeps me completely disconnected,

Without ever being out of touch.
