The white light wraps around my brain.
Taking another hit
I scamper to the home screen
With the knowingness that it’s not what I need
But it’s what I want
I check all 6 of my social media platforms, refreshing them two times each just in case someone decided to reach out to me.
Then I drink deeply from the feed.
Scrolling sips of sustenance for my starved mind. The mind that left this body just for a while to become a part of something bigger, greater.
[A commune of hungry ghosts searching for freedom]
I tape my eyes to the screen, i try to leave
With the realisation that it’s not what I want
But it’s what I need
And I can’t
