44. I wrote for an hour/
Twenty small poems on life/
A keystroke lost them/
#haiku

45. Then I spent an hour/
In the dark woods of Apple/
Fruitlessly trying/
#haiku

46. I am heartbroken/
I lost some of my poems/
And I’m powerless/
#haiku

47. Powerless over/
Things others can simply do/
Makes me feel so weak/
