Disappearing Poem

Never and always the same,

The Divine Hand,

Inspiring written words

Through stirrings deep within

Guides the flesh with

Universal force,

The ego to emote, explain, express.

However the fingers

On the keyboard

May be driven to it


Their impact upon them is randomized

By egotistical asymmetry –

We think, therefore we are:

Idiosyncratically not so bright.

Example:  me,

While typing far into the night

Lubricated with a glass of ale or three

I somehow highlighted everything

Then pressed the “Backspace” key.

So slipped away my poetry.

Where did it go?


Do I know.

Back into the ether

From whither and whence it came.

    I love the fact that I am not the only one who erased my poetry today. Great write, Tom.

    Actually this poem is based on the recent experience of another poet, but I have been there before, too. Kinda sux, actually. 🙂
