An Accidental Delete

You sit around trying to find. A way to share what's on your mind. And then a title for a poem. Comes in in hopes to find a home. You cue the page to write it down. But in the end it's just a frown. You leave the page to check a word. Then click, it's all just too absurd. You've accidentally hit a key. That erases all that you could see. A poem that was not far from done. Will not be seen by anyone. If I'm going to be honest here. I got more pissed than shed a tear. But computer erasers are just too good. They do what your fingers say they should. So now I ask what can you do? To avoid this just before you're through. Spending your time and energy. On something no one will ever see. P.S. I just typed a poem before this one and went to dictionary to look up a word and hit the x instead of the arrow to return to the submit page. :/ Oh well, Whatta Ya' Gonna Do Huh? But write a poem about it. :) <3 The category I listed it under? Assonance. :)

This happens to me often! Sad thing is I never make a back up copy. When I try to write the poem again it never seems the same!

Yep. :) I liken it to when I write an amazing poem in my head at 4:00 in the morning laying in bed half asleep. They're just out there floating in the stratosphere somewhere in the morning mist. Nice you stopped by One. :) <3

gosh, I just did this the other day but lost a long email to someone. I asked someone at my school if I could retrieve it and she said Control X or Z. Something like that. Try it next time and see if it works. I need a handbook of controls to look at for all my blunders. Good one, Les. I will get to my emails tomorrow.

Thanks for the possible resolve Andrea. I'll have to google and see if there is some more info on that. <3
