I look down a my hands,
bear claws over the keys.
SO many shapes;
SO many letters-
They mock me.
I know how I want to respond,
But i can't find it in my heart. Who knew Email could cause this?
I thought we were perfect for each other,
You said u would wait.
I thought that meant more than a month.
I could easily type 3 words.
Should I do it?
Just 8 letters,
but do i even?
Do u care?
I don't know.
I know nothing anymore.
I look down at my hands once more,
They drift toward the monitor.
My right index finger pushes the power button.
Everything goes black,
I get up and walk away.

This was a class assignment. I've never really written poetry before, so I'm VERY open to constructive criticism!:)
