ELLIPSIS, written by Dilip Mohapatra at Spillwords.com

When we walk together
and I hear the lone cuckoo
cooing in the boughs
I hear more than just a song…

When we sit together
and I look up to see the lone moon
swimming in the clouds
I see the moon in many of its clones…

When I cup your face in my hands
and look into those doleful eyes
which I have by heart by now
I see more in them than
what you may see in mine…

When we bring our lips closer
they may not tremble anymore
neither of the feverish fire
nor of any fatal fear from
the scythe of the Grim Reaper…

But we know for sure
between the hellos and goodbyes
the moments do linger
between your lips and mine
love lingers for ever
and along the unending continuum
and beyond
exist only pit stops
but no period…
