The Lonely Electron

I sit alone in singlet state,
No other electron to share my fate,
At spin a half I precess alone,
No other electron to call my own.

You said to me I'll be magnetic,
Told me that I would be electric,
These are not the powers that I desire,
Without stability I begin to tire.

Below me I see the pairs together,
Will loneliness be my fate forever,
I am higher in energy but lower in esteem,
To be paired up is the electron dream.

I see a ligand coming in,
Will there be an electron with opposite spin,
With a flash of light we can now bind,
To be forever intertwined.
