Love Story II by Neil Ellman

A point has no parts
and we have neither a center
nor circumference.

We are
at that point
in the universe of our days

at which all existences
and you and I begin and end.

Nor does a line
have shape or breadth
as we have none.

As we dissolve
into the point
that is barely real.

Without the parts
that would make us feel
when we do not

That would make us real
unlike a point
when we are not.

Neil Ellman, a poet from New Jersey, has published numerous poems in print and online journals, anthologies and twelve chapbooks throughout the world. He has been nominated twice for the Pushcart Prize and twice for Best of the Net.
