Digital & Online - Poetry


Written by Alma Claire / Art by Jeanelle Van Der Merwe

little screen,

sweet denial,

let me live inside you for a while,

let me leave the world outside,

let me find a place in the pixels to hide.


blue light,

insomnia nights,

let me numb away the pain of the day,

let me scroll until i feel ok,

let me pretend i know the way.


hello phone,

virtual home,

let me escape my one precious life,

let me fall in love with a thousand likes,

let me live eyes down and heart shut tight.


little screen,

sweet denial,

i think i’ll stay for a little longer,

maybe just until i feel stronger…


let me escape.
