Between two lovers is a constant,
undetected, of tolerated distance
regardless of their passion.
As one moves closer to the other,
the other blindly moves away.
That’s the give and take of it,
governed by addition
with a maximum of two
a sum of one and one
Regardless of the urge to meld
it will be gone at dawn.
Yes, love is mathematical.
