Scientists are beginning to reluctantly admit that telepathy may one day be rationally explained due to the intriguing research into quantum entanglement, a process by which atoms one joined seem to stay in communication across vast distances As all living beings are composed of atoms, this may explain telepathic communication between lovers and other attuned at a soul level. I had fun writing this poem.
My atoms desire your atoms; they are poems that soar above the stars that made them
They reach out to you, wanting, dreaming of fate, although it scorns them
For nothing much happens when you fall in love
On a sub atomic basis
Just wanting, just dreaming of the light that shines on your face, the same light that travelled from a star to find you
In this room where I find you, in a white smock, consulting the clock on your iphone, measuring our time as I wonder if atoms can rhyme to form a garland of verse or must they disperse, to the dark side of verse, in which I curse the impulse that compels you to leave me for the cornflakes aisle in Tesco
And find atoms of our former selves
On the pastry shelves
That day we got profiteroles
That touched such sweet things in our souls
Till we mingled and tingled
Like a loom band bewitched.
