Poem: Press ‘Send’.

Angry typing,

Heavy words.

Acerbic emotions,

Like sharpened swords.


Write the absolute truth,

Then delete.

Sugarcoat the truth:

Make it bittersweet.


Time to press ‘send’;

Your finger hovers.

Sudden palpitations

About losing your Lover.


You read and reread,

You feel nothing but dread.

But the words need to be said,

So you can stop seeing red.




Deep breaths.

You shake your head, asking yourself:

‘Is this the end?’

  1. I felt this. Lol.

    Especially ‘but the words need to be said’.

    The hope is to wait, cool down, modify the message and send.

    But hey the ‘red’ drives us sometimes.
