For Mick

by Camy - 8th August 2006

Hindsight, sweet hindsight:

that wasted time when

days stretched to months

and months to years:

without you.

Subtle unsure glances -

I knew I loved you but

could never say:

reciprocation a dream

hidden like me.

Until now.


I never know if it's right to punctuate 'poems'. Yesterday this had caps at the beginning of each line and no punctuation ... but it felt wrong.

I believe puncuation in poetry is exempt from rules. The poet is creating a world and he has the right to make the rules in his creation. Sometimes I use puncuation and sometimes not. Whatever seems right to the poet is what's right.

Another good poem Camy!
