Why I don’t write poetry

I used to write  short ditties verses, rhymes, odes
Started in late primary school, carried on in secondary school, then in JC.
I typed everything up 

Wrote about school about homwork, exams, friends and life
Wrote and wrote
 just for fun
saved it all in a folder
inside my 386 computer

it crashed one day. 
 just blacked out.

i was 17. 

It took with it years of poetry
I stopped after that
it was too painful

The death of words
I’ve never written another poem since.
