tempting titrations

took awhile
till the chemicals shifted.
reducing romanticising
to millimetres in a tube,
centimetres measuring the distance
from me
to you.
dumbing down hypotheses
titrating technicalities
to facts and pleas,
hoping one day we’ll reach
of you
and me.
when beauty becomes
a sampling of nerves –
the wrong ones perhaps.
then I’ll find my trials undeniable,
experiments, unbearable –

and then I’ll start again.
