your sweet luminous glow

comforts me in my loneliness

shields me from the outside world

my problems disappear when you are on

you listen when no one else will

my only friend

this can't be healthy

but what else can i do

i've know you too long

since the days of diapers i sat in front of you

too young and naive to realize your effects

sesame street seemed harmless enough

but later on in life i still cannot get enough

your vivid colors drew me in

and it's your incessant hum that keeps me captive

i try to get out but my eyes are glued

i know there must be a better way to spend life

but why should i venture out

when turning you on is too easy
