You see this breed everyday,
They spend all day on social media,
Obsessively watching your every move,
Dissecting everything about you,
From clothing to lifestyle,
Unfavorably comparing themselves to you,
Criticizing and mocking every mistake you make,
Yet they ignore the good that you do,
How pitiful that some would be that bitter,
They believe that their words have power over your life,
Yet they ignore the world descending into chaos around them,
Or maybe they don’t,
Maybe they just pretend not to care,
And instead project their lofty ideas unto you,
As they are not as brave to live out those filthy fantasies of theirs,
So why not turn you into their experimental guinea pig?
Life is too short honey,
Live for you,
Not for others,
Especially not for the cowards on the social media who hide behind smoke screens.

Hello?!! Anyone out there?!
Wait….where the silence?
Why the lack of engagements?
The lack of likes or comments?
Am I ever good enough?
Or am I just that desperate?
All I want is to share my work,
To fit in, to belong,
For I feel so alone,
I want to reach out,
Yet a voice tells me not to,
All I can do is sit in my little corner,
And break down in tears,
Someone pass the alcohol,
It is time to drown away my sorrows.

Meow meow meow,

Oi!! Master!!

Master please wake up,

Kitty wants to play,

Give me food and yarn,

Or better yet a nice cuddle,

No bath time please,

I can clean after me just fine,

Ah hah you have woken up,

Now attend to my needs human.
