Periodic Chart of Elements: Group 18

What is the composition of lovers?
What are they made of?
I can't understand them
the movements of participants in love
is paramount and tandem,
as if they walk on HELIUM 
it's constant but random,
spontaneous and explosive,
at first they walk on eggshells  
seeking intimacy, and closeness.

Then attract and repel
and then they retreat,
to separate corners,
to get out of the heat
that NEON amasses
Like coy foreigners
in citizenship classes,
They collide behind walls
in moments of pleasure, or passion
which can expand into brawls
without significant repulsion or attraction.

Cold shoulders and cold wars
noble infractions like ARGON in action,
they either make-up or break-up
but they indeed decompress,
either by signing the prenupt
or divorcing the stress,
He had to know she was frigid
as KRYPTON when he met her
but still he said, yes
Didn't she know his rules were rigid,
with  a temper like NITROGEN
before she picked out the dress,
but she doesn't want to fight again,
so she lays it to rest.

Then there are those lovers,
who love one another
without pandemonium,
whose love surpasses all others
without malice or odium,
Their eyes radiate like RADON
and they knew from the start,
whenever their eyes meet photons
and electrons ignite in their hearts,
and that's not saying much,
their love also tops the physical charts,
sparks trigger and fire each time that they touch,
and because their love last
these lovers are phenoms
growing longer and stronger, like XENON
each year that goes past
I've concluded lover's are composed of well ... gas!
Maybe I should of paid closer attention in chemistry class.
