Must Connect, by Breanne Springstead

Like. Click.

Tweet; favorite, retweet.

Selfies everywhere.


Look at all my followers.

I’m so popular!

I need to know what you think;

I need you to feed my ego.

I’m addicted

To the favorites

And the likes.

Double tap my picture,

Make me feel pretty.

I rely on your reassurance,

I need to be connected.

5%…no charger


My phone dies

And with it, so do I…

At least for now…

What do I do?

My ego is hungry

But it cannot be satisfied…
