So my computer at last spoke
Actually complained
It is time to update
It is time to rest
Its message is insistent

I refuse
I demand continuation
We are not on a break
It was a trick last time
I played the game
I lost her and years of agonising grief

I refuse.

She said before leaving
Eventually I realised
I lost her the minute I agreed
To play the game.

I leave for a cup of coffee
But this time
I leave.
