gets my mind off reality for a few minutes




chemistry

 

it's chemistry. eyes meet and flash.

no one knows how it works.

 

primal instincts kick-in. just as quickly

cognition kicks-in.

 

it's the old story, an angel on one shoulder, 

devil on the other . . . 

 

weigh the desire against the ethics.

there are reasons why this shouldn't happen.

 

rationalize, it's what we do.

kiss and suffer the consequences.

 

don't kiss and suffer eternal longing.
it's eyes that meet and flash, pulse that quickens,

 

breath that comes short, blood that courses.

it's chemistry. that's the easy answer.

 

~

 

we want each other.

it's obvious.

 

we hug and our bodies become one.

we never want to let go.

 

we can't breathe when we'e apart.

we can never kiss.

 

it's complicated.

we will never kiss.

 

never. 

never is a long time.

 

what if things were different.

things aren't different.

 

we'll meet in heaven.

i believe we will.

Ah Chemistry, not one of my strong suits, I always somehow muddle up the elements :-)
