You are constantly looking into –
don’t even notice me when –
we’re home alone.
chatting and texting as –
I’m longing for attention but –
you’re not even noticing.
as the days go by I –
but you’re always in your phone just –
turning a blind eye.
your fancy phone filled –
has left our relationship filled –
I wish I was that smartphone that –
soaked up your attention
I wish I was those apps that –
enjoys all your affection.
