I ~love it~ when you do that thing to me 

where balloons inflate from the-tips-of-my-hair and then   

                                                             c

                                                               a

                                                                    r

                                                                      r

                                                                      y     

                                                                          me overto where the

                                                                                                                

       

                                                                                                                                  ¦              ¦          ¦

                                                                                                                                  ¦sidewalk ends¦

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                ¦             ¦            ¦

and I think you ~love it~ when things don't work out the way you thought they would 

and bits of you boil down to baser ingredients in beakers on children's chemistry sets 

                 (((((if you want we can head over to the other place)))))

                                                                                                                                                                                ^^^^^it's darker there and quieter and when you make mistakes it doesn't feel like your chest can't beat the way it wants to^^^^^ 

over thereyou can hear the public transportation 

and since over there it still feels like 

                                                                                                                                                                                                    {home}
