The machines hum quietly
Lulling me to gentle oblivion
My mind focused completely
On the softly glowing screen.
Endless code scrolls line after line
As my fingers dance in a
Ninety step recycled number
The quietly clicking tempo of the keys
In time with the clock.
As I glance up I see you out of the corner of my eye.
The darkness envelopes
Your pale form, washed white
With the computer screen's glow
Black nails tap out a rhythmic sequence
As the air plays with your raven locks.
The night wraps around us, strangely intimate
And I look at you, tired eyes alighting
On that which soothes me like rain:
My beautiful mechanical angel.
A/N: It's a bit different (and shorter) than what I usually do, and took only a few minutes to write. I've not really decided what I think of it yet. On the ninety step thing- I counted the number of keys on a keyboard that a person normally uses to write code and things like that, and I totaled about ninety. Please drop a review if you've the time.
