The Battery Died

I started a poem
And ended with two,
As words on the page
Exponentially grew.
But, as luck would have it,
Sleep knocked at my door.
Then the battery died
And the words were no more.
I could not believe,
When I woke the next day,
My computer had acted
In such a strange way.
Normally the data
Would quickly restore
When powering up
The computer once more.
But lost are the words
I wrote in a blog,
Surrendered to sleep
Surrounded by fog.
