The Darkness

The darkness has descended upon us

The candle glows before us

No one speaks at first

But then a conversation begins

Soon we all speak loudly

With fierce passion

Arguing our own points

We laugh together

And smile together

After a long time

Sometimes it’s hard to remember

How to converse

With each other this way

Without staring into the screens

Of our technology

That we are so proud of

When I wrote this poem the electricity had gone and we were all just for once sitting down and not doing anything on our laptop or mobile which was really different and it kind of made me realize how technology has sort of taken over our lives and how we need to embrace the present more.
