Entropy

"My theory is entropy. 
The reason for my hearts stuttering beats.
The only explanation for my scattered thoughts. 
Thoughts that hide at the edge of my subconscious,
Eluding me when I need them most. 

It is the only word that comes to mind
As I try to convey the feelings you evoke in me. 
The way I am beginning to fray at the seems.
While your fingertips leave burning lines on my arms.
Your eyes seeing right through me. 

How is it that this thing called love,
A force tethering us together by a silver string
Is able to tear me apart? 
Leaving me bare, 
Raw to the emotions you bring.

We are two beings
Scattered parts in a giant universe. 
Two specks of dust in light of eternity.
My love for you equals the weight 
Of all the beautiful words you painted me with. 

The sound of my beating heart breaking out of rhythm, 
Falling into entropy—How you have undone me. 
A precious life made up out oxygen and atoms.
Out of all the people in the world,
Oh how could I have been so lucky to meet you."
