Love poems by teenage amateur geologists

Why
Why, Ignatius, why?
Your heart has frozen over like a stone
Leaving me here to sob and moan
I thought our love was igneous
When in fact its more like inorganic chemical sediment

Love
Oxides are red
And silicates blue
Ocean trenches are deep
And so is my love for you!

Unrequited
I weather your indifference like
An ancient aqueous pegmatite
I remain coolly stoic
Like something from the Cenozoic
But beneath my outer-most mantle
My heart-shaped core is unable to handle
It

Megan
My girlfriend is like a huge metamorphic rock
Vast and sun-baked
Providing shade for the lizards and
The arthropods but still
Shapely

You
You crashed into Geology Club
Like a Mesozoic meteorite
Killing the dinosaurs of dullness
And bringing
The diorites of delight

Que?

I'm sure Pav Cat would tell you not to encourage such people!

I thought the last one was particularly edgy.

My papers beat (as in Kerouac) your rock(s).
