you see the girl

by Bichon

you see the girl
on the regular,
with her head in her phone
as she walks off center

one may assume
she is addicted to the device
and may need some advice
concerning her unwise choice

but she is not addicted
to the screen that she probes
but uses it as a coping mechanism
for her own woes

that girl is scared
of the reality that faces her
so she makes her own
where no future can chase her

i am thinking of starting a possibly series on poems like this. basically i will just write about random people, making them up, and try to delve a bit deeper, essentially it is along the topic of you never know what people are going through, especially random people. looks do not mean everything.
i will see how this one does and possibly continue with it, we shall see.
