All But Never
cubbzor

This feeling has been once before,
 1
years ago, left in the Ides.
 2
And yet, its familiar whisper gained slack,
 3
a feeling I wished to abandon, only crawling back.
 4
 
 
The gap ceases to be ignored.
 5
That split shaped inward pride.
 6
A sole factor to openly credit,
 7
I thought she moved on, I guess she regrets it.
 8
 
 
Two years time warps like two weak knees.
 9
I won't beg, I will not plead.
 10
But if our bodies return together,
 11
and sing at the moon under 'Stormy Weather',
 12
I will not mind, our time apart
 13
all but never.

what is it with all this poetry without punctuation? did these kids not get any education at all?
 — unknown

This poem has a lot of killer lines though line 13 is weird even if that's what you meant to write. (I will not not mind) Good overall...

oh whoops, that was a typo, meant to be just one "not" in line 13.

What's wrong with punctuationless poetry?
