A Pause

A pause 

goes against

social laws,

in the grip 

of our nervous

screen-tapping 

paws.

Little doubt,

the fear of 

missing out

is a cause

for concern,

few discern

how “nice”,

became “need”,

then “greed”

for more

‘likes’,

‘followers’,

‘retweets’.

Quite bizarre,

but here we are

unsure how,

when, where

to switch off.

A lost cause,

to wean us off

our phone,

like a dog and

its bone, 

just enough 

may be,

to lift our head,

to gift ourself,

a breath or two.

A pause

to snatch 

our lives

ensnared

in jaws

of all things

“forever on”.

Long enough 

to capture a 

moment 

in our hearts

going from

“is” to “was”, 

instead of

through the

all-pervasive

modern day 

Chimera-

the Camera,

that draws

constant applause,

With no scope 

for a pause.
