(For Dónall) Chemistry


All the men I’ve ever loved
all the ways I’ve ever loved
compounded in us

not just a mix
not a case of mechanics
not a solution
that time might
separate

but
atomic fusion
cell by cell
a new formula
chemical
irreversible.

    The chemistry of love is well narrated in a poem with dual aspects, one being your side which seems apperantly loyal and perfect like molecular and chemical processes and the other being mysterious from the counterpart.
