Pay No Attetion To My Puncuation Marks

This here
was made for you.
And I know that
you’ve probably heard that
a thousand times already,
But this here,
was really made for you.
The punctuation,
Might throw you off.
So pay no attention to it.
The comma
May suggest,
That there’s more to come
But there isn’t.
The question marks,
Will lead you to believe,
That I’ve questioned
My decisions,
But I haven’t.
And the exclamation mark
Might allow you to assume
That I’m happy or excited
But I’m not
And I’m not.
But this sentence here,
this statement right here,
This period right here,
Was designed for you.
So that when you read it,
To yourself,
And to her,
And repeat it,
to yourself,
And to her,
You’ll realize,
That it’s over.

WOW.

I can't believe you were able to make such an great poem out of punctuation. 

My hat's off to you, Boosflash, a master poet.

thank you-I make it a habit not to read daily. I guess you can see what illiteracy has done to me. I should completely forget everything school's has taught me in a day or so.
