Phantom Living

I don’t speak my mind
not a lot
not really any, if at all
for what’s the use really
when all the responses lack
humans have turned slowly
into an image besotted
with the one on the mirror
or perhaps the screen
putting on a show
a persona that speaks
like robots, removed and ill fitting
forever glued to the irony
that has been deemed social media
yet no longer are on display
the old ways, the true ways
of connecting
of caring
for someone living
but rather the image
a phantom really
existing, a vague representation
of who each really are
or has the so few decades ironed away
the essence of humanity
essence of the community that was
beyond the threshold of our homes
now confined to media,
even if social it rings
and spins into a realm
social media.
