Big Bang Theory


Science and love
Are far apart, seemingly separate domains
That exist at the opposite ends
Of the universe, love is organic
Seemingly natural and forthcoming
Where as science is synthetic, lab-conjured
Simulation of the knitty-gritty,
The reductionist, the nuts and the bolts
Of the universe evolving in gradients
And in these distinct DNA of two separate worlds
You will find common ground
That lust – seemingly at first sight –
Spawns in an instant, just like the big bang theory,
It grows from something animalistic yet sacred
And love is the goldilocks planet
That ensues, a collision-conspired mass
Weighing inside a boundless universe of 21 grams
Entrapping another life form
As soul-satellite
