Fruitless Efforts

Fruitless Efforts

A Poem by Joshua Carl Cruz

Why the Writers Cafe's
computer page
couldn't save
I couldn't say...
Why my cleverest jests
were laid to rest
without a breath 
I couldn't say...
Why I lost everything
like wedding vows 
and diamond rings 
I honetly, could not say...
But the screen had refreshed, 
and as one would guess, 
not one word was left 
of said masterpiece!

Alas I know this feeling well, over the decades I have had ideas that left me spellbound after just a few lines but I was not in a position to write them down. Try as I might I was unable to put myself in the same frame of mind to remember but a line or two but they were never the same. Witty even if it is a painful topic, so thanks for putting that splinter back into my thumb Ha! Ha! A pleasure to read, thanks for posting :~)

I could totally relate to what you're trying to say here . Your style of writing has directed my attention all through out - and it wasn't a fruitless effort.

I enter into panic when that happens to me, that's why I write first in my computer now and then here. This poem expresses in a great way that feeling. Great write!
