The Science of Love

chemicals conspire in creeping caustic crawl

voluminous veins decry the seratonin withdrawal

such is the chemistry of love

.

dopamine, incendiary infiltrate

under weight of sighs shall consummate

the inexplicable science of love

.

yet beyond these clusters of chemistry

wrenched from abstinence

my mood pivots on words

that pirouette on your tongue

sulphur on a deflagrating spoon

resolute oxidation set to outlast

the periodic, elemental charm

of unstable compounds set to disarm

to distract us

from the covalent bonded

attraction we cannot deny

our bunsen heat dialled to low

our indiscrete love froths to overflow
