After watching the movie directed by David Finch—“The Social Network”. Awesome movie.
You feel it settle
On your skin, the deep penetrating stare
Of a restless spirit
Letting loose the gate of untrammeled desires
The uncontrollable mouse-clicks
Your sweaty index finger’s frantic tap
The flash of a blinking screen
Refresh. A tiny red box. A number.
It is the calling tugging
At the strings of your mind
A fidgety monster
A wound that refuses to heal
An itching that manipulates your impulse
With disturbing ease
Your eyes, pressed against your eyelids,
Fighting to burst free
That thin layer of skin is the only thing
That keeps you from tumbling down
Down that the infinite sleepless blue
Your soul is here, on The Wall.
Trapped inside a white rectangular box.
This is where your voice is heard.
This is where your life begins.
This is who you are.
