Could you fall in love with someone’s mind?

 

For example, now, they talk about poetry,

and they are so serious and there’s fire within their words.

Or — you are watching the stars, it’s a quiet night, he is right by your shoulder,

Almost touching.

Nano-particles barely pass through, and it’s a bit awkward,

time is moving slowly now.

And you can feel yourself getting older,

But then he speaks about time;

about waves, about particles, and how light consists of both.

And he looks up, shows you the stars,

but doesn’t compare them to your eyes,

Rather, he says: „Did you know that half of those are probably dead?“

But that doesn’t make you sad,

you start to wonder why, and how nothing is as it seems.

There’s deeper parts within, microscopic bits and pieces (so weird!),

enormous Dwarfs, holes that are maybe holes (apparently not)

And dark matter —

It has no colour, but it’s called like that because no one really get’s it (that’s sad!).

And you realize now:

This world is full of mysteries, science is amazing in many ways,

if you know who to ask, where to look something up,

Don’t get confused on the way.

There’s misinformation, not to cause trepidation, I just want to say „Look out!“,

Think, and if something seems weird — ask, don’t fret.

You’ll find someone who ponders about.

But if they say it’s only how they explain

and it can’t be any different — Hold on!

Know very well, that’s narrow — there’s no absolute!

Science is evolving, changing constantly, even Stephen Hawking

changed his mind.

And that is a sign of a true scientist — being wrong is alright!

The important thing there — is to remove the mistake, so

if it comes from you then get rid of it, too,

there is no shame in that!

 

But we wandered off topic, my question is forgotten,

So let me remind you:

When will you fall in love with someone’s mind?
