The Energy Between

You and I are quarks.

We’re subatomic particles,

Never found alone,

Have to be with another.

When you pull us apart,

The bond between us grows stronger;

We snap together with such ferocity,

Heaps of energy buzz between us.

The more I try to ignore it,

The more it sparks in my mind.

What I’ve failed to mention is:

When quarks do break apart,

They instantly find another quark to join.

Maybe that’s why you’re with her.

Maybe I’m not a quark at all.
