Erased

Where do words go when they get erased?
Do they go to some secret and faraway place?
Or go into your eraser- is that what they do?
Waiting patiently there to be born anew?
Do they climb up your body, and back into your brain?
Do they just fall off of your paper, with patters like rain?
Do they hide under desks, make homes under chairs,
Do they sneak into your clothes through your rips and tears?
Do they fly into the sky, float off all about,
Til they find a new pencil from which to come out?
Are they stored by some person, in boxes, on shelves?
Well I guess we’ll never know,
Until that day comes,
When we get erased ourselves.

I love the subject, its so cute! I like how you rhyme until the last few lines, it ties it up nicely. Now I really wonder what happens to the words I delete in Microsoft Word... :P
