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
equidistant,
equilibrium
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.
