A science teacher of mine once told me
That nothing is ever actually touching anything
Because the electrons of our atoms push each other apart.
I think that he has never been in love.
Or maybe he has
And it just ended badly.
But when you and I are together it’s like every aspect
Of our entire beings are touching,
Like we are the same construct,
Like we are two hydrogen atoms
Fused together in the core of the sun.
When you say you love me
I swear I can feel those words pull me in,
Like your affection is so great is has an atmosphere of its own.
When we kissed I was in space
And you were the whole damn galaxy.
And how fitting is that metaphor now
That you are farther from me than ever before?
It feels like we are solar systems apart.
But our attraction is cosmic
And the gravity of that fact
Causes my thoughts to constantly orbit you.
