Mag 105

Miles from nowhere
We used to look for a phone
To “reach out and touch someone”

Now we carry our phone
Everywhere
Never out of touch

I long for the chance
To go
To be
Out of contact

Alone with my thoughts
Or
With a special someone
Uninterrupted
Uninterruptable

Because then
Miles from nowhere
Is truly
Somewhere
I want to be

  1. Boy, does that nowhere sound bliss!

    Mark, I don’t own a mobile phone. Had one about 4 years ago (even that was a hand-me-down!) but dropped and broke it and I haven’t replaced it since. Against all the odds, I have managed to survive without it….YAY!

  2. Of course, there is always the option of an ‘off’ button on a mobile! But there is a fine line between solitude and loneliness for some people who’ve not learned to be at peace with themselves.
    A thoughtful Mag offering…
