Death By Seduction

I turn you on,
My heartbeat
Echoes, thunder in my head,
Louder than
Your gasps and groans,
How long has it been?
Since the first time
I explored your depths
With innocent wonder?
I still remember,
Your brilliance, amazing
Your ambience, mystifying
Your speed, electrifying
Your performance, unrivalled.

I fear that each
Connection,
Will be our last,
Doesn’t stop
Me though, from
Pushing your buttons
Fingers trembling,
Heart thumping,
Breath trapped in chest,
Flutters in my stomach,
Panic powered prayers
Lord please, Lord please!

I have done all I can,
Transplant after transplant
Cure after cure,
Yet you lie
Crumbling slowly,
Bit by bit,
Dying, slice by slice
Inches from the grave
Buried by instalment everyday.
I hope to delay the day
I hear whispers of Fate saying “Nay”.

I cling to your bones,
Brittle with decay
Smile through the stench,
Love is patient, nay?
How much longer will it be?
Before you are snatched from me?
My heart dances–
A caged bird.
Loving you as I do,
I can’t help but save
Little pieces of you
In black vials
When you go,
If in the act,
Let my name be on your lips
As Yours ‘ll always be in my heart,
A memory of bliss,
Adieu, Chris
My faithful
Dying Laptop.

  9. @nicolebassey, this felt somehow ‘deceptive’ – I felt the imagery that was used didn’t quite work for the object under consideration.

    But it was very poetic and amusing.

    Well done.
