To My True Love – A Chemical Romance
Your eyes are what draw me to you, soft, deep and of unchanging hue.
I see deep into their core, little sparkles by the score.
They scintillate all the while, no two are the same,
Those flashes within your eyes, like ions in a flame.
I see the crimson of charged lithium, the green of a Barite,
The lilac of ionic potassium, a truly marvelous sight.
Your pupils are truly special, a wonder to behold,
They are so like a fiery wire of platinum or of gold.
Your nose entices me too, to its tip I succumb,
It’s delicate as a flower, yet strong as dry gypsum.
It wiggles with your swinging moods, it points to joy or terror.
It’s like a voltmeter, with negligible error.
So cheery is your bearing, ever so animate
You’re as effervescent as a hydrated bicarbonate
You re-dissolve my fears and cares, when I’m wan and glum,
From clouded Cu(OH)2 you vivify me, to deep cuprammonium.
You make the best of all you have, churn happiness out of all you see
Like zinc you could milk H2 from acid or alkali.
You inspire me and arouse me to a bolder, more sanguine state,
You feel sometimes like an overdose of acidified permanganate.
You could be sparring partner, co-conspirator, counselor or me-o-phile,
You resonate between all of them, running rings around phenyl.
Fellowship flows around you; reserve and distance thrown aside,
You facilitate people’s linkages, like vanadium pentoxide.
You’re as delicate as platinum sometimes, to poisoning so susceptible,
Yet at times you’re like carbon fibre, super strong and flexible.
I desire you and your love forever, (not to sound like a pop crooner on TV),
I want our bond to be strong and lasting; like diamond C-to-C
In writing this I present your importance to the process that is me;
In short, you’re the limiting reactant in our chemistry!!!
