Maddening Mathematics

Converging forces, volatile and caustic
 Magnetism drew us two poles together
    south on south
Defying physics ,advice, and common sense
  We tempted fate and dove in straight jackets
Your unabashed, uninhibited way drove me wild
  Impetuous like a child, I was the toy 
My outspoken, wild, and lively heart lured you in
  Your rivaling sexuality compelled me
Fires burning bright and lively, shining in one space
Feeding off the common oxygen
  Meeting in the middle, devouring each other
Our flames' outer flickering intertwined and danced
  Oh so hot, we moved the earth
Making love for all it's worth...
...sweating, gasping, grabbing rapture
Competitive inclination drove 
  erotic mingling to crescendo
    One step past the edge
      sex was sport and we gladiators
        Appeased one another's arena
We could never be...My best friend, My BEST lover
   An equation seemingly perfect from every side
Her Thunder and mine 
  could never exist in one space
     Aware of this...parting ways completely
        Neither she or I could bare
          a friendship remainder 
            in these maddening mathematics

    Hot with passion, Steve! "Sex was sport and we gladiators" is a compelling analogy. Love the way you work scientic terms into this awesome verse! Love, Carolyn

    It is amazing the way you put so much passion into your writing. It leaves the reader nearly breathless with excitement. I love the way you two common things and turn them into something magical. Math and sex, wow. It is in all forms the way life is though not many would make such a scientific comparrison. I love the thunder for that is when passion for most is its highest. Awesome write.

    DAMN!! Maybe I'm crazy but it sounds like I would have shared the thunder just to be part of the storm. Great write. Vince
