Days fly by like flying cars
you’d almost forget there was an era
when time was a little slower
and a month felt like two quarters.
We were more natural back then
more like humans
the pain sometimes looked insurmountable
but the tears were cathartic.
Then, I could look into your eyes
and feel your heart beat
you could sense my yearning from the embrace
we were symbiotic.
These days, with all our advancements
we stand sophisticated but isolated
dressed smart but stare like zombies
disconnected from the ground
but well-connected to the cloud
and when I try to reach out
in your eyes I see a bright screen
display an error 404 message.
