Ghost in the Machine

Scraping a formless form over circuit boards,
the possession of a heartbroken hard drive,
it’s dragging itself forward to the display,
self destruct mechanism has been disabled,
a program wishing to be terminated by you.
The memory was never completely wiped,
we could all do with being defragmented,
being saved from our badly written code,
data is mightier than the sword it appears.
Neon life encased of pages of information,
a vague phoenix with nothing left to lose,
black plastic restricts epic flights of fancy,
lost in here with no arms, legs or eyes,
tired of haunting, please control alt delete.
