Arithmetic of Love

One Plus one is two, of course.
But two is also one.
This math is taught in lover's verse,
The first course has begun.

So one times two is one again.
But geometrically it grows.
For one times one is two again.
As back and forth love flows.

But steer quite far from zero's null
For love that's so divided.
Becomes a house that's sure to fall
From love that's unrequited.

And neither can you multiply
A love by zero value.
In doing so you will imply
That naught exists without you

And in doing so you surely find
Much worse than you implied;
A vacuum of love in your mind;
A heart that surely died.

G.H. in solving system of equations of love that we all yearn to decipher you shed new light on the easier way to solve the unsolvable. Thanks! ;-)
