THE MATHEMATICS OF LOVE By Mawendo the Poet

Written by Editor

” The mathematics of love”
I’d always had a head for figures
36-24-36 being my particular favourite,
And you had the kind of curves
That could bend a man all out of shape.
Legs 11
That are a stairway to heaven,
And lips that are sweeter
Than a slice of cherry Pi
And 3.14159265359 times more satisfying.
In Addition to that
You are 100% action.
There is not a Fraction
Of doubt in my mind
That you are Acute little thing,
Always considerate
And never Obtuse.
On a Scale of 1 to 10
You are >11
You are premier Division
And always know the Right Angle
To approach me from.
The touch of your hand on my skin
Can cause a Multiplication
You + me
Is an Equation for happiness
That cannot be Subtracted from.
You are the Root
To all that makes me feel good,
And the way that your eyes look at me
Is a Co-sign(looool)
That you feel the same way
And sends my spirits
On a Tangent
Of delight
Knowing that our hearts beat
With the same Logarithm.
The Circumference
Of our love
Cannot be measured by mere numbers.
It is Equilateral
To Infinity.
Together we are a Prime
And that number is 2
But my number 1
Will always be you
