Love In the Time of Parenthesis.

By Sunaina Patnaik at Thursday, August 31, 2017

I loved you with the wonder of exclamation marks,
never with an uncertainty of question marks,
and absolutely never with the conditions of asterisks,
even in between the commas and periods,
I minced my adoration in words and sent it to you
with underlines and double quotes,
on days when we went without dialogues and
maybe colons,
or existed in the form of ellipses
I hoped we could fall back into a state of normalcy even
if it meant through strokes and parenthesis,
but you?
you just never cared to read in
between the lines.
