Come to me my love
I see you pass
Time and again
You are close
But not close enough
I am patient
You are resplendent
Your lead ions bathed in
synchrotron radiation
Oh they have not been kind
To either of us
Our electrons stripped away
long ago
Yet you remain positive.
I love you for this.
None of this matters however
With defenses down
We can become as one.

The lights of Europe dim
You race towards me
in the dark
Faster, faster, and faster yet.
We approach the speed of light.
Time slows for us.
Metaphorically and relativistically.
Our longing separated by a few feet
of hard vacuum
And several tons of
superconducting magnets
You gather speed
I gather resolve
What will our first
tender embrace be like?
Could our first kiss
even match my imagination?
Will our relationship endure?
Only time
stretched as it is
can tell.

Suddenly, in the blink of an eye
Actually much faster than
the blink of an eye
Or maybe just the blink
of a really fast eye
The path between us is open.

Come to me my love!
I see you or at least I think I do
A short stride behind your photons
Then we meet
Your passion overwhelms me
I am knocked from my moorings
My hadrons are lost in you
In that moment
A multitude of conceptions
We watch proudly
As our children spiral off
into innumerable directions
and bury themselves feet first
into shielding

Oh they are bright
And young
And very high energy
I hoped our love would last
But I was wrong
Thank you my love
Thank you for those precious femtoseconds
I shall always cherish my memories
And the billion data points
from the particle detectors.
