Lament of the Separated

We are of two different worlds,
You and I.
Polar opposites on the planet of intelligence,
We are at different ends of the spectrum of life.
Separate galaxies, light-years apart.

But like any two masses, we attract each other,
I know it.
Such is life – where two objects become one beautiful singularity,
And where time should have no meaning, and there is no distance.

Why can’t we have that?
Am I wrong, or are my calculations accurate?
Our two dimensions (mine somewhat skewed, yours immaculate)
Could blend together to create a harmonious cosmos.

I am inhumanly far from your elegance.

You are truly a star in your own right.
But how much brighter things would be,
If you would but collide with me
Sewing together in the fabric of space a nova of passion.

I hope that this short piece will conjure emotion and have a specific meaning to you. This was a short project for my English class.
