X plus Y equals U and I

We met at point forty five At the stop, the beast on four wheel drives I intentionally ask for the travel fee Unconcerned about your impression on me The moment you spoke of the bus cost My numbers and calculations were lost I wanted you to be the ying to my yang Be the caller, as my telephone rang My wise professor taught me mathematics With formulas got my mind performing acrobatics When letters and numbers were combined I hoped that we were eternally entwined Can I ever find e if u are square root to 128? 128veu, I don't wish for you to carelessly illustrate Although the axis x was shorter than y However your line will still converge mine "Yang", you called facing the scintillating sun Far past distant plains where we scorch and run You are my "Xiaoping", capturing my troubled heart- A splintered cork you used to sealed as treasury art To the antique shop of organs you visited Lies my draining veins stood so privileged Satisfied with the length of my heart rate I mailed gratitude to my aesthetic fate Can you calculate if my rate was abnormal? Alas! With you, I am immortal My ancient professor taught me algebra Equations that held us like bunches of abaca That engulfs the arid earth with triumph My axis extends higher than a tree's xylem The horizontal axis of x for Xiaoping And the vertical axis of y for Yang If those axis intersects at point forty-five It will equal to a pronumeral U and I

That is clever and heartfelt. It's obvious this wasn't rushed and that this is something you think about deeply. At least it made me think about it deeply. And intelligently as well
