Computer Lover

Defragging my disk
my thoughts turn to you;
did you clean up your life
when you deleted me in June?

Did I analyse too much?
Leave a bad sector in your mouth?
Was I nothing more than
an unused extension?
a temporary file you knew nothing about?

We used to be so contiguous
never more than one percent apart;
my heart mirrors my heart now,
forever fragmented and hard.

I used to think De-fragmenting my computer hard drive was a waste of time but it’s funny how close the inspiration to write can sometimes be.
