Control, Alt, Delete

Control, Alt, Delete

If I could control life 
from some alternative universe,
I'd delete you out of it.

You try to control and manipulate others
With your alternate version of the truth,
but all you seem to manage is killing--
Killing love, killing hope, killing self-esteem
deleting all the joy that was. 

Control, Alt, Delete
Sorry, you no longer have a valid username or 
password for this heart.
Don't bother applying for a new user account. 
I'm done with your using.
Access Denied.

Control, Alt, Delete
I've logged you out. 
Out of my heart,
Out of my head,
Out of my life. 

Your poison will no longer control my life. I'm tired,
Tired of your petty attempts at manipulation.
Tired of all the one-sided care.
We cannot alter the truth.
You cannot delete your careless words
or hurtful actions.

Control, Alt, Delete
It's time to shut this relationship down. 
It's time to change 
status
Ignore user(s)
Block caller
Deny access
All codes changed.

If I could control life 
from some alternative universe,
I'd delete you out of it.

Control, Alt, Delete
Shutdown

But perhaps,
I just did.

Sincerely,
Heart Administrator.

with sad conditions of the heart....is it best to shutdown or restart....before you try either, you should try an upgrade....the boddie virus protection could have stopped the mistakes before they were made....lol....I Love this jaycee....;)

This was for a friend in the middle of a reboot, the topic was a challenge thrown at the poets of World Open Poetry Mic, and that's where my mind went.

Nothing more dangerous than a poet scorned.

Well thank goodness it's not personal. The look on my husband's face as I started to read it for the live radio show and podcast, was priceless. LOL
