If I were in boxes, I couldn't be contained.

You have me, and I am like you.

in-finity (1st line)

af-finity (2nd line)

I'm not sure. I cannot fully grasp how it could fit the third line.

Could the third line suggest another word containing the same suffix -finity?

Anywhay it doesn't occur to me. Maybe because of my not so good (ok very bad) English skills.

ops ...anyway (it just goes to show)

Sorry, been moving this weekend, so haven't had a lot of time to check up...

Lol...okay, so Mr_ME figured out the 3rd deltamu and CP got the first 2 lines...

Affinity.

If I were in, I couldn't be contained. -If it were INfinity instead of AFfinity...

You have me, and I am like. -If you have affinity for something, you like it.

I go up as you go towards F. -Electron affinity (EA) increases as you go towards the element Fluorine (F) on the Periodic Table...;P
