The Science of Love

chemicals conspire in creeping caustic crawl

voluminous veins decry the seratonin withdrawal

such is the chemistry of love

under weight of sighs shall consummate

the inexplicable science of love

rich reveries release

and a polish on palm remained

friction fused memories

a scar there ingrained

plastic tattered trailing

crucified on splintering frame

to soar and dip

in giddy refrain

.

predisposed to lure of flight

spiral of slackening string

i am a kite
