No, Not Never

hand, shine, purple and aesthetic - image #6751869 on Favim.com

i say no for
now, not..

never, i can’t see
past the
trees

into your future
let alone be
there,

and i won’t claim
in good faith
to know
best,

nor can you
presume

you’ll always
want my
yes,

so i say no
today..

tomorrow’s
anyone’s
guess.

  1. Very E.E. Cummings like with the style and wordplay. 💕 I love that.

    Beautiful poem as always, GG. The future is unknown and can change in a moment gone. I find I can resonate with this. Not everyone will change their mind, but possibilities—just like the future itself—are always open.
