  • 5 summers from now
    there will be another guy
    who will be wrapping his hands
    around my waist.

    And he’ll ask me
    if I have been in love.
    I will smile and look into his eyes
    and tell him how I have never felt
    this way before.
    But I won’t be able to say
    that 5 summers ago,
    there was someone who
    made everyday seem like
    mid spring, and how he
    made me see blossoming flowers
    in mid winter.

    And he’ll leave soft kisses on me,
    and tell me i’m his world.
    And i’ll effortlessly say it back,
    but I won’t be able to say that
    5 summers ago someone else
    was my entire universe.

    And my apartment will have
    little specks of him all over ,
    but I won’t be able to tell him
    about the little smudged off specks
    of you in my heart.

    Kids are spending more time than ever in front of screens, and it may be inhibiting their ability to recognize emotions, according to new research out of the University of California, Los Angeles.

    The study, published in the journal Computers in Human Behavior, found that sixth-graders who went five days without exposure to technology were significantly better at reading human emotions than kids who had regular access to phones, televisions and computers.

    The UCLA researchers studied two groups of sixth-graders from a Southern California public school. One group was sent to the Pali Institute, an outdoor education camp in Running Springs, Calif., where the kids had no access to electronic devices. For the other group, it was life as usual.
