Break Ups And Modern Technology Do Not Go Together

Break ups are made even more difficult with modern day technology, I feel. it's harder getting over a break up in modern times as there are so many reminders popping up here and there unexpectedly. 

Getting over a break up is never easy,
But it's been made even more difficult with modern technology,
With everything made public on social media,
It never makes piecing your heart back together easier.

There are the pictures and statuses that show up your social media feed.
The ones that you did not need to see,
It will send you back to that dark place you don't want to be in,
Especially when you least expect it.

There are the apps that let you revisit the past,
With just a click you can walk down memory lane,
You get to see how different things were a year ago,
Sometimes it's a blessing, most of the time it's a curse.

Then there is the changing of relationship statuses on social media,
The status changed to 'single' when things ended,
And suddenly you see they change theirs to 'in a relationship' or worse, 'married,'
You then began to wonder if it was something you did.

You cave in and take a peek at their social media,
"It's not stalking, it's research", you say,
You see all the cute wall posts from their significant other,
"Could I have done something?" you began to wonder.

It cannot be erased,
That feeling of being replaced,
It is something that stays with you forever,
Even when you get your happily ever after.
