comfort in a boundary
I shall not fly away
warmth in a foundation
inviting me to stay
limitless in slumber 
I dream of things anew
no other cover 
except my lover
I long for only you

Thanks to the Mag

Can you explain why leaving out all punctuation helps the reader to understand what you are trying to say?

Doctor FTSE,

I am not sure that it does.

When something creates images and impressions in my mind, I place them verbally in a small pile, hopefully arranged attractively. Others seeing this may react in a personal way as fits their present being. Sometimes I am not necessarily "tryng to say" anything specific.

One might wish that a non- objective artist put a horizon and a few vertical lines that we might better divine the object that inspired him/her. The manner of writing these little verses is admittedly somewhat self-indulgent. In my profession I must write academically and administratively to convey complex concepts to others in a very precise manner in order that they clearly understand my intent. When I get a prompt from Tess it is a delight to be able in a couple of minutes to jot down my immediate reaction without any consideration of persuading possible readers.
