Chemical Reaction


We are just chemicals
Poured from one beaker to the next.
Sometimes alone,
Sometimes into another-
Where we mingle and mesh together.
So exciting while we stir,
But time lets us settle.
And when the motion goes,
We see with some sadness
How easy it is for us to part.
Decant me,
Siphon you.
Wave goodbye with a small smile that says we tried
As we move away unchanged.
But every now and again,
Life pours us in unsuspecting ways
Into one liquid that makes us bubble,
Makes us burn,
Makes us glow.
And changes us irrevocably.
One we can't be separated from.
Who leaves their indelible mark on us.
This unexpected reaction,
Is why they call love
Chemistry.
