The Facebook Addict by Laju Arenyeka

My fingers shake,
My legs are pressed together from an enduring bladder,
My shoulders ignore the numb pain
My heart beats faster every second
My vision is blurred by red, blue and white
My eyes read my lips
“Just one more message,
Just one more photo,
Just one more friend request”
Yet amidst a singing stomach
My eyes know that lips lie
Burning the mid night oil I would have slept
On my knees, a trip to wonderland
Yet to like and unlike,
My clear eyes dare comment
On and on, hide and seek
Till NEPA rears its ugly black head
And on hands and legs I grope to bed
Dreaming of all my friends
Who have taken my neighbour’s stead
