Drabble Challenge #126

Prompt: game
Little minds obsessed
Loving devotion to this unreality
Addicted beyond understanding
Imagination explosion
Monsters, portals, swords and flying
Dreaming, breathing, living the game
Pretending at life
Hours slipping by unnoticed
Mind numb to the bodies needs
Life slipping by unnoticed
Unheard, the soul screams for human connection
All around you devices to connect you
But not enough connection to the living
Excited little mouths rambling seeming nonsense
Little bodies siting still for hours
Swift flying fingers on colored buttons
Little crying meltdown when the time is up
Parents shaking head in confused wonder
We create a generation lost in games
