Newton’s First Law of Romance:
In every romantic frame of reference, each soul acts on
uncountable others, and in turn is acted on by them.

Newton’s Second Law of Romance:
In every romantic frame of reference, each force of
idle touch is permanently appreciated and again
re-appreciated.

Newton’s Third Law of Romance:

hearts and arms.

Gauss's Law of Romantic Magnetism:
There are no singular romances; romantic lines of
force never begin nor end—never cleanly.

Maxwell–Faraday’s Law of Fleshy Attraction:
Work per unit soul required to move around a closed
dance floor equals the rate of change of unimpeded
lust along the outermost walls.

Einstein’s Mass–Energy Equivalences:
Any attempt to search for some foreign heart of nature
will dissolve every other soul’s magical underpinnings
of trust.
