Extra Key

Every next keystroke was wrong,

And more wrong.
Any more like this,
And I’m sure she’ll pack her toothbrush.
I did all I could.

I’ll miss your meter
And your serif font.
Keep the extra key.
I want to see you again.



The inspiration was Poets United's Thursday Think Tank. Basically write a poem based on a quote. I picked a quote by Paul Valery that I placed on the home page of my blog. "A poem is never finished, only abandoned."
