Your words are balloons.
They snap in the heat.
Burst from the inside.

The bubbles are rising
to the smeared surface
of mistakes taken.

Claw your hand up,
up, up, up, up, up,
to the sun! Reach!

Just tear through that water,
and touch one more sphere
before we burst

from the inside.
My words are balloons.
They break in the heat.

The bubbles are slowing,
this surface of craters

is spinning, down,
down, down, down, down.
Break!

Just tear through the sky,
shudder on down
to the sea.

And let me see once,
floating on the waves,
that burst...

from the inside.

I wanna be president of the Mikey fan club!

ever tried to burst a ballon by sitting on it? it can be quite painful.

And the angel said unto me, "These are the cries of the carrots, the cries of the carrots!"

My intent was darkly erotic. I like your version better.
