I was never here.

I was never a line of

misaligned buttons a pair of

lips which lines were always a size too small for yours

and if summer circa 2011 did not stain the back of your hands

my fingertips never touched your palms.

Overall

I love the concept and a lot of the lines are absolutely lovely. I feel like there's a lot of room for elaboration and maybe some context. This feels like one stanza in what could be an incredible piece of work. As it is, it almost feels a little incomplete. The end just feels abrupt, like there's more to it than is conveyed. However, this could very well be your intent. In-completion can be an art in and of itself.


Overall

You have a beautiful start to your narrative but i wish you could have written more about the "summer circa 2011". I especially love the last line which says "...did not stain the back of your hands my fingertips never touched your palms." keep on writing. :)

Overall

These are my FAVORITE types of poetry. stories with meaning. You didn't use to many small words like many people do. I like the stanzas, I say keep them. Keep up the amazing writing :)
