Polished in the mirror,
everyone who knows it
now knows of ME,
and has liked my image repeatedly.
This is my good side
quickly, capture that twinkle,
sparkle and finesse;
from every angle imaginable,
and photoshop it
until my form is pleasing and recognizable.
Stare at ME entirely
but only after I have given consent,
after you subscribe to the content.
Please don't bother ME
while uploading my deep thoughts,
I am trending now;
but yesterday I lost a follower
for ME it's like losing a limb.
Such stress makes ME lose focus
I forget to breathe or eat,
such a price for the framework;
I'm not just a vessel, I'm an idol.
I'll rise and steal the moment,
little snares for captive time.
Look at ME
don't lose interest,
stop texting when I'm talking to you.
pay attention to ME for once.
Automatic flash goes off
set for selfie, now filter applied
something is missing here,
a selfie born without the self.
Don't pity ME
the phone doesn't lie;
imperfection can never be
addicted to the social feed.
