I’m in chemistry
Taking notes
Really boring ones
On atoms

Quite honestly
the only chemistry
I pay attention to
Is Ours
The people-eating monster
    Eats people for the kicks:
He eats a stomachful of people,
    Then all his fingers licks.

And then he waits with expectations
    High; and then he detects
Initial signs and growing symptoms
    Of psychoactive effects.

i'm not talking about
inter dimensional travel
between the planes of reality
with a final destination of the 8th world
no, just going back to the basics
we've all heard of these
"7 wonders of the world"

theres the pyramids and the gardens
a light house i believe

i'm sure zeus was mentioned
along with arthritis?
no, no artemis, that ol' chap

haliarnassus and colossus
thats about it
seven right, no detail
just brushing up on the facts

well after about 10 years of research
much endured suffering
many fallen tears
and lives given to the cause

I petition the 8th wonder

organic chemistry.
-dedicated to those we lost in the battle
i don't get it
i don't understand
the chemistry
the frequency
is falling out of my hands
what is it about me?
what is my problem?
why aren't i like them?
them like me?
things like that
could never be
what don't you get?

Science is hard
Chemistry is harder

Chemistry is defined as the complex, emotional or psychological interaction between two people
Our chemistry is tangible
Our chemistry moves entire cities
Chemistry is so hard because you mix all these things together and they either blend and make something fantastic or they blow up in your face
They leave you with burn marks and scars to remind you just how badly you fucked it all up
And I think what we have here is a disaster ready to burn my face to blackness
I think what we have here is a scar ready to form and last forever

What we have here is a chemistry left to remind me I still wasn’t good enough
What we have here is a chemical reaction that the whole class can laugh at

So science is hard
Chemistry is so hard
But having good chemistry and bad timing, that’s just heartbreaking

In hybridization
Shuffle around electrons
In orbitals
To be able to bond
With the maximum number of electrons
Of another atoms
Rather like the amount of effort
She takes
To connect with you
Does it work, does it not? I wouldn’t mind some feedback.

Let us dance to this new song
New instruments added
Chords never heard before

But do we know how to dance?
Will we just go with the flow?

We just went with the flow.
Another one playing
And there was born
A new type of dance
I've been drawing silver lines in all the words you never said
I should've read the silence as more than just comfort
you taught me that chemistry is vital
and your arms felt nice wrapped around me
but I'd be lying if I said I wasn't thinking of him
so believe me when I say I don't hate you
not even a little bit, not even at all
I hope you found in her what I wanted us to be
we both deserve the kind of love that makes our heads spin

Today wasn't just hot, it was super hot
And like two movie stars with chemistry
They were kissing in the parking lot
One of those kisses everyone dreams of

And overhead a fast moving dark cloud
Of a thousand chirping birds
I'm pretty sure more than one vehicle
Became their shooting target

You feel that urge again
to let heat lick your palm
just to know how the pain feels when it really sinks in.

Your faces are thrown into ghastly detail
and gaunt shadows rise and fall in the flickering light
on your faces, in your eyes.

Chemistry lab,
sit next to the blue flame
of the Bunsen burner just to capture that smell
without shame.

Light a match
without reason
just to watch the tiny blaze eat away
just to leave black ash in its wake.

You feel a bit too close to the fire,
but your curiosity and wonder do not tire.
My entire lab group in Honours Chemistry likes fire perhaps a bit too much.

EDIT: What was I going with this? None of are at risk for setting random things on fire, don't worry. At least I probably am not.
