    unless

    Did I use "unless" correctly here? I believe I didn't.

    It looks OK to me, but I'm no expert on poetry.

    Re: unless

    I was just asking about grammar. I know "unless" is not always interchangable with "if... not". I meant "if... not" here but used "unless" because of the rhythm. I wanted to know if I'd broken any grammar rules by doing so.

    Thank you for your reply.

    Re: unless

    I think it's fine to use it as you have done.
