    No longer

    "I will no longer be with you."
    "I will be no longer with you."
    Which of the both above is correct? I have a bit of problem of using the phrase "no longer".

    They are both grammatical. The first is more natural than the second. The second seems old fashioned or poetic, perhaps even Biblical in origin.
