Do you ever wonder what a nerd would write in a love poem? probably something like this... (please excuse all of the bad puns)

*Finally edited the centimeter/inches mistake I made in this poem, thanks for letting me know. -4/22/2012

Like two foci of an elliptical
Your eyes entice me
Cause my cardiac muscles
To palpitate
As I estimate the distance
Between us

I’ve arrived
At the conclusion
That you’re sitting
Approximately 5 feet and 11 inches
Away from me
7 and one half millimeters closer
Than yesterday

As you sit there
And I calculate your potential energy
I find myself wishing
That I could change
Y= mx + b
Into y = Unext2me
You are my complementary angle

I long to whisper
That Newton’s laws
Were created just for you
Of course that’s not true
But logic doesn’t matter anymore
Because my feelings for you are growing exponentially

Like radiation, you penetrate through my skin
You watched my veins branch like fractals
While I reached for the pencil that you dropped
You listened to the logarithm my heart produced
At a near inaudible frequency
As I returned the pencil
To it’s rightful owner

Like absolute zero
All molecules within me halted
In that moment
Your centripetal force sent me spinning
And though they say opposites attract
You didn’t even utter a thank you

It figures
Seeing as the probability of you noticing me
Is exactly 1 in 10,032
But I long
To cosine my name on a love note
Addressed to you

You are the Pascal behind my triangle
And you can count on the fact

that I’ll calc-u-later

Oh this is superb! I just LOVED the "Y = mx + b / Into y = Unext2me" and, well, just everything about it.. I love that you captured the passion that exudes from a scientific mind, not always the easiest of tasks!

This is completely and fully awesome. You had me hooked from the first secentance, and the ending (Calc-u-later; Love it!) had me laughing out loud. Believable, and the words flowed together great.
All in all, one of the best poems I've read on here in a long time.

This was so good and funny :) Nerds probably won't write it like this, I'm guessing, but either way, I loved it :D Keep up the good work.

Haha, I love it. Especially the end, calc-u-later. There were some big words in there that I couldn't under stand but I shall look them up and then I will learn new words. This poem is educational. And awesome. I'm gonna show it to meh friends.

I wish I had thought of this and written it for someone, 'cause right now I'm more singular than a square matrix that is not invertible.
