The Lost Data - Poem by Jameel Ahmed Ansari

It’s lost
Goddamn shit,
It’s lost

My six years of data is lost
What the hell,
It’s lost

My college days, the Cogni days,
The Gangtok trip, the goa trip,
It’s lost, ya it’s lost

80 GB oh no,
It was worth much more,
What a pity, it’s no more

My poems, her pics, my pics
My book, my codes,
Goddamn hell all is lost.

It pricks when I think,
It haunts when I go back
I fail to believe that it’s lost

U won’t know how much it means to me,
U won’t ever know how valuable it was,
I just want it back at any cost.

Just a mere data it was,
But it had my emotions attached,
Oh God it’s horrible to think that it’s lost

I didn’t slap neither did I scold her,
I have controlled my anger
I cried last night to put up with the loss.

I feel sad and ripped apart,
I know I won’t get it back,
The only thing I can do is to look forward.

NB: The other day my sis somehow formatted all the drives of my machine which had data dating back the past 6 years. Unfortunately I had not taken the backup. I was just blank and annoyed after seeing that. So thought of writing my feelings at that point.

    Awh! Its so remorseful! Very aptly presented poem Mr.Jameel for it portrayed an imagery before my eyes when my cell phone was formatted by mistake. These moments are worth laughing for those things were so valuable in past days.Thanks for sharing (Report) Reply
