Inside a Computer Game Addict's Mind
It's just numb-
The computer game and I are numb.
Mum is asking,
And I am playing computer games yet again.
I know this game very well Mum,
I don't need to think,
It's just a common reflex,
My fingers and the buttons.
The score is getting higher and higher,
The numbers are increasing rapidly,
I feel a sense of accomplishment Mum,
As I go up to the next level and the next and the next…
That's why it's addictive,
A deep sense of curiosity and determination,
To see whether I can get to the very end,
Otherwise leaving me in suspense.
I don't need to think why I can't do well in school,
Or if I do, I heck care anyway,
I am in control.
The game belongs to me.
