Biochemistry Of Love

When couples come together they start to fall in love.
The brain uses sensation to give reason a shove.
Potent olfactory signals are flashed by pheromones.
Oxytocin chemicals design bonds with hormones.
"Love is blind" by torrid kiss.
"Love is blind" by hit or miss.
When couples hang together they start to scrutinize.
The brain uses cognition to jointly analyze.
Potent logical signals are flashed by mentally.
Cortex axons and dendrites design cerebrally.
"Love is mind" by pensive quest.
"Love is mind" by work or zest.
When couples stay together they start to equalize.
The brain uses strategies to mix and synthesize.
Potent sensitive signals are flashed by heart and soul.
Biochemistries of love design a stable whole.
"Love is kind" by tender care.
"Love is kind" by good or fair.
