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. :)
