    1. Sure there are probably infinite dimensions but I'm with you in this one so why would I try to find them.
      That got me.

    2. The way he says 'Its true' after 'the new way to say I love you in just ramping our foreheads together' makes me heart smile.

    3. can someone explain the line about falling in love and ramming our foreheads together? i don't really know what that means

    4. Please, please, PLEASE do NOT take out the line "Reason to Wake Up-O's." I LOVED IT

    5. alex if you find this that’ll be so funny but you make this poem mean something i love you

    6. i absolutely love this except i'm a flute player and i'm slightly offended that learning flute is useless.

    7. A month ago when I heard this poem I laughed, because it was so stupid.
      This time there are actually tears in my eyes, because I fell in love and finally understand what he means.

    8. "if you were a cereal you'd be reason-to-wake-up-o's" I'm putting this in my wedding vows thank you
