(For Dónall) Chemistry


All the men I’ve ever loved
all the ways I’ve ever loved

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.

Poem of the Day
