The Missing Period

Did you ever miss a period
In a run on sentence,
A period that you misplaced,
A period so round and subtle
Like the beauty mark on your face-
Wasn’t under a comma,
Not between a pause…
It built up suspense
Like light through a lens
But that period was still
At a loss,
You looked under dashes,
Question marks?
Called out for it!
But it still didn’t come
So you crawled under an
But felt like
Because the period never begun
And what’s a semicolon
Ever even good for;
I bet it’s just
To make you feel safe
But oh that period,
The one that you wrote for-
That one’s done and gone
Like a knave.
