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

Punctuation
And abbreviation
Can mislead
Sometimes

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
