I admit I was trying to find a way of contacting you when I received the notifications from Stands4/ that you had liked my comments.

Before I go I don't want to leave you hanging, thank you for finding something enjoyable about the posts I left; although the notifications only mention you 'liked' it and so I don't know what part(s). Finally, I have to agree that punctuation in poetry is blurry and often too broad an application to pinpoint the pattern. I hated poetry in school but I've been writing it in the closet from the age of 16. It connected me to you when you mentioned album covers, I love lyrics and that is how I do my part.
