Of Grammar and Other Things

Syntax

You know my intimate details:
my commas, my periods, my exclamation points.

How can I hide from you?

Shared syntax, parallel structure, semicolons.

You know my rhythm:
my iambic pentameter, a-bb-a, my ups and downs.

You have read the deepest part of me…

Holding my sentences close to you,
underlining my pauses,
taking note of my clauses –

You have tapped into my soul.

My love, my syntax.
