Garth Rakumakoe

Handheld Device

Now he’s texting to get her back


He would’ve felt her disbelief

and probably believed it

He would’ve heard her screams


He would’ve felt her arms eject his

Would’ve felt love recede

He would've heard the door slam

He would’ve, seen her leave

had he not been so handheld

by the device


Classic modern day love chronicle

    Some people are so focused on phones , technology that they forget the people around them . He should have focused on the girl lol !

    Good writing ๐Ÿ™‚

      Very true yellowrose, that's the way modern love goes at times! Thanks for the ever pleasant visit!

        Technology .., itโ€™s not that interesting is it . I think sometimes people can be so focused on iPods phones and probably may have nicer time doing other things ,

        You nailed right on the dot dear Garth - - - so much passes unnoticed when holding those kind of devices - and I love the graphic which gave me a big smile.

          Very true Fay, it almost makes one wonder whether it's the device that's handheld, or the person. Thank you for the positive feedback dear writer. ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿผ

          Dumped by text.
          Wonder if Shakespeare is laughing.
          Could be worse, I got dumped by letter.
