Science and romance in a sonnet

This one was fun to write.

Let's get physical 

Spectacular attraction -- far beyond
the norm which noted lovers could expect
between their planetary selves (a bond
resembling basic gravity's effect
because it operates at any range,
grows stronger with proximity, and will
not ever cease to pull). And yet our strange
entanglement is more -- a force that still
exists inside the orbitals, within
the nucleus, between the quarks -- so strong
that it cannot be gauged, a basic spin
on certainty that will remain as long
as stars shall fuse, for we are so entwined
that our distinctness will be undefined.
