I sit in front of my computer,
Writing my little poems.
And searching for motivational pictures,
I can post on my social page.
Hoping someone will read them,
And click on a like.
Or better yet, click on my heart,
So I can know, someone cares.
Most of the time,
Nobody writes a comment.
I guess no-one really wants to,
Get to know me?
I’ve been posting for some-time,
And still haven’t made many friends.
All I have is a handful of old ones,
Mostly acquaintances and family,
Who’ve accepted my pity-friend request.
I feel like, I’m only practicing,
For the day I become famous.
But, deep down I know,
I am just writing, on a digital diary,
For my eyes only.
Sometimes I read others’ posts,
And notice, how theirs resemble mine.
Other times, I’m jealous of the celebrities,
Who have hundreds of followers,
While I only have some.
Funny, I never knew I was lonely,
Or felt like I needed any attention,
Until I got hooked on this app!
