Author's Note: While this was written largely in jest I still feel a strong connection to it. I hope you will, too.

Love in Binary

I am a computer
I only have my words
I am confined by pixels
I am defined in numbers

You are a virus
You make my words a jumbled mess
You create a world within my own
You turn me into something else

In your presence I self-destruct
My systems run at half-speed
I am sending packages
Which cannot be recieved

But in order to delete you
I must become a shell
My files were not backed up
I will not recover
