What if I said “Hi”?

Peer to peer. Amidst our fear.
To connect. To hold our hearts dear.
This we crave; dictating how we behave.
*
But our tendencies deep seated, to social media we’ve retreated.
Not an idle moment can pass by, Without our minds occupied
*
Afraid to just sit and be
Or if I look lonely, what others will think of me
So I pretend to rush, or seem in a hurry
And in phones our heads we bury
Swipe left. Swipe right. Double click to like.
Mindlessly following the rules of the game,
Ive forgotten my original aim.
*
All the beautiful people are passing by
And I sit here pretending to be shy
But what would happen… if I dared to say Hi?
