Love in the Time of Facebook

Facebook Love,
Often works hand in glove
To divert blessings from above.

A dangerous addiction,
A digital passion,
Obsession eggs you on.

A denial of reality,
A failure to realize the gravity
When duality becomes the norm.

At first glance,
It seems worth the distance,
Before it slides into perchance.

Better to be still, and wait
And, not let the Internet
Distract you from taking a real life bait.
