Connected and Alone

We are all connected in some way
through text, a phone call, instant messaging
Facebook is the king of them all
Yet are we really that connected?
Just because a website reminds us of important days
Events and parties
Letting us see who is attending
making it easier to avoid those
we would rather not interact with
And instead of learning how to cope
We learn a system of avoidance and shallowness
Taking everything at face value

Everything seems too perfect
It has got to be a trap
This just cannot be real
Where is the catch?
When is the clock going to strike midnight?
When will the "dream" end?
