I wonder why
It is not to fly
But to fall
In love

An accidental slip
A leap into the dark
A rush
A crush
Breathtaking excitement

But this, fades
You find comfort and ease
You ride the wind
And float on air
So long it feels like flying

But it is,
A fall

The hard part comes
Nearing the end
When we are met so often
With what is hard and cold
And wish to be back
Standing on that ledge

Ready to fall
Wanting to fall
But standing unsure of what is below
Unsure of falling
In love
