Burial In Bits Of Memory

Clicking a box, pixels of you
seething sorrow beyond a hard drive

Seething sorrow
clicks a mouse, a j-peg
your pixels so tiny like dust

Rain from my face
washing keyboard grit

Clicking fragments.
Clicking a little box
much smaller than
the box they buried you in

Grave computer warnings

Are you sure you want to delete her,
send her to the recycle bin?

No, delete me
