You are my favorite form of punctuation. 
An open bracket for me to fill, 
a promising set of ellipses… 
 You are the semicolon I’ve been waiting for; 
you are the choice to continue a sentence 
we could have ended half as quick. 
The comma that begs more, the question mark 
that wants to know how and why? And--
it’s you, on the other side of every breath and pause. 
You are the excitement, the passion and energy, 
the joy and surprise of each exclamation point. 
But my favorite (my absolute favorite) is when, 
together, we lay and form a small but sure 
                                                quotation mark, 
 waiting to spill out our very own novel.
