Chemically Connected

By: Shelbi Henny

chemically we form this combustion
feelings always seem so reluctant
to break through a message unclear
and although we never fully understand
the language we still try to break barriers
our hearts form the only thing we can never let go
and I hold onto you 
suffocating in the moments that meant nothing
the simple gestures that some how meant something
blow in the wind
cigarettes pollute your lungs 
and a kiss tampers with your heart 
knowing that we are so close to the end
no need for storytelling 
we sit in silence 
replaying physical interactions
yet our chemical imbalance lingers on 
though there was never a formality 
to breakdown how we could stand it
just always the ability to react
the greatest combustion of us 
we ever had
