If Love Were Mathematics…

26 May

If love were mathematics
All relationship issues would add up
One plus one would make two
And not one as we are told
In marriage

If love were mathematics
All relationship issues would be solved
By using formulaic or algebraic equations
The four figure table would be the bible
Of marriage

If love were mathematics
All who tried to divide a relationship
Would go under like the denominator
And not like the numerator rise
In marriage

If love were mathematics
All worded problems
Would be expressed in figures and letters
And the solutions would be
In finding the right variables
Of marriage

But love is not mathematics
Whether you find it easy or hard
Love will not ask you why
It won’t even let you choose your ex

There’s no reason to be scared
Of the mind buggling equations
Or try to follow any formulae
Forget about algebra

Love speaks a language of its own
And each person has a unique tongue
Love is a language of the arts
It is not rocket science
It takes one and one that choose to be one
And are willing to weather every bitter storm
As they come
Forever committed
To do all it takes
To remain one

    “And each person has a unique tongue” really? Gotta find my own unique tongue so that I can find the love and stay in it this time before its too late. Nice one Abigail.

    Lurvly piece, Gail…till I read that “…Love is a language of arts” Haba! You are biased o! Does that mean scientifically-oriented individuals have no chance, no? Or you mean its a skill/art form that can be developed over time?

      I mean it is an art, surely scientific minded people can learn the art:) do we really need to analyse this scientifically?
