Chemistry 101


When I see your smile, my atoms ionise
Be my whole spiritual being, be my blessing in disguise
Be my 1s electron, my precious element and I’ll love you more
In good times & in bad, like the times of our father Niels Bohr
Take me to your most secret and serene places
Where the two of us will enjoy, the glance of all possible phases
Steal all my elements, and only leave for me the Carbon
For you are my one and original icon
Violate my thoughts inside, and mostly the inside chemistry
Or fill my empty orbitals with your love and mostly the void within my poetic mystery
Many tears I’ve cried, thoughts I’ve wondered and words scattered
Console me with your crystal symphonic voice, unified as the precious molecules cluttered
Be the back bone of my chemistry divine, and mostly my mentor and true friend
So that like chainless units, our love will flourish like polymer ends
Within these thousand years, come into my life and solely dwell
Like the chemistry of my gentle age, be the magic of me with no spell

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

My books I'd fain cast off, I cannot read,
'Twixt every page my thoughts go stray at large
Down in the meadow, where is richer feed,
And will not mind to hit their proper targe.
