The love poems you sent me
In our secret code
Now rot in the trash bin
Of my Yahoo account.
You broke my heart,
I broke your retainer
With a swift kick to the jaw
To try to make your pain equal to mine.
I ripped open the plastic casing
Of those numerous cheap floppy disks
Where I stored the terabytes of your love
And cut up the inside with scissors.
And I scratched up that burned CD
With our favorite love song on it.
I used it as a Frisbee
And then stomped it to bits.
And I deleted all our saved Instant Message conversations
That I thought I'd treasure forever.
They were just taking up space.
I cleared up some space on my C drive
As I tried to forget what we had
Bit by bit and byte by byte
I purged myself of you.
And now I shall seek consalation
From the girls in my "Just For Teens" chat room.
I'll post a thread about the pain
The pain of nerds in love.
A/N: This poem is what happens when I start thinking to hard in Computer Literature class. Happy belated Valentine's Day!
