…and out spouts a mediocre poem without a title, because titles mean the work has reached a state of completion

backspace-

my friend and nemesis

in the same stroke.

my fingers tapping

across the keys,

words unspoken

by lips, teeth and tongue.

confessed by fingers

tap, tap, tapping.

backspace-

until each letter

is deleted.

leaving nothing

twists and turns get in the way.

no time to get stuck in this craze,

this tangled web gets worse each day.

need a magic potion

like a fairy tale

such a silly notion.

stormy skies send hail

beating

down

upon my mind.

answers hide themselves away

locked in a place only I can find.
