My life
my heart
my soul
wiped out
permanently.

Well over
100 poems
two plans
for novels
that I wouldíve
loved to see grow.

Profiles of
characters
lost, forever
in the click
of a mouse.

It breaks
my heart
more than
breaking-up.

I need
those plans,
Iíve lost
the hard copies,
I canít
remember them.

Iíd hate
the computer
but it was
a fucking
user error.

Oh dear, how sad, have you really lost everything? All that work gone, now wonder you are angry - and you have channelled that anger beautifully here. Even the expletive isn't out of place as you haven't overdone it by using too many. Love it.

Yes, unfortunately I did, most of my poetry was on my site so I still have some. But the missing plans and profiles annoy me the most, as everytime I think of something to add to it all, I realise I can't because it's gone. It wasn't even me who naffed it up, it was the so-called "computer expert" - that just makes it that bit more infuriating.

But thank you very much for your comment, and I thought that "a stupid user error" didn't really have the same ring to it.

Rai, what a bummer that must have been! At least someting positive has come out of it, your poem. It'll all be there somewhere on your hard drive man, you just need to find some data recovery program to retrieve it. Best of luck! Nice works.

Rai, I can imagine that it has broken your heart. You have been very disciplined to write so calmly until the end, which is all the more effective because of it. Good one.

Thank you both for your comments, coincidentally, just after I wrote this I remembered that I'd shown one of the major things I lost to a friend whilst in its early stages, so I managed to get it back.

So, that was lucky, as the harddrive was formatted and so completely devoid of history.

Thanks again,
-Rai-
