Technology

he reaches for her hand ... gently

he looks into her eyes ... romantically

he whispers in her ear ... quietly

they burst into laughter ... simultaneously

his cell phone rings ... loudly

he drops her hand ... abruptly

she walked away ... angrily

he catches up to her ... quickly

he asks for forgiveness ... humbly

she grants it ... reluctantly

he reaches for her hand ... hesitantly

her cell phone rings ...

I relate, in spades, to these words. Great title for this poem, too.

Sometimes I think technology has ultimately ruined as many or even more relationships than it has ever fostered.

My Lady, it was inspired by a couple i saw walking along the beach...

Lin you are so right...

couples rarely talk anymore and it makes you wonder: "how important are you really, that you cannot go anywhere without your cell?"

i've heard numerous cases where people were in relationships and as a result of facebook, reconnected with someone from their past and broke up w/their current partner...

and let's not get started w/ALL the stuff available on the net...a dangerous place for someone with addictions and or someone w/no perspective boundaries...

Have a great day!

I don't think a smart phone, a computer or any social network were ever meant to BE the center of anyone's Universe... but sadly they have become exactly that... at least for some people.
