Undeleted Texts

They scroll falling as tears
There is no GPS tag
But I can remember the location
Each time my phone pulsed

Tantalising snippets
Of what once was
My replies remembered
But unrecorded

Saved to my soul
Not just my memory
I reread searching
For a nuance unnoticed

Neatly date ordered
They can be summoned
At the press of a key
In perpetuity

You can edit them
If you want
Reconsider a reply
Be wise after the event

And abbreviation
Can mislead

You can press send
But never recall
You can read
Or just delete

But never again
Will my heart
Miss a beat
At that bleep
