Flying on broken wings

Love is like a cliff;
People rappel down,
to the point where they feel comfortable enough to jump.

Me,
I’m forever perched,
at the edge of this cliff;
Without a tether,
ready to jump;

I love this feeling,
the feeling of falling;
The wind in my face,
running through my hair,
that feeling of weightlessness and the immense weight of gravity;
Pushing me down;
Pulling me towards itself,
into itself;

Falling in love,
eyes wide shut ’cause opening them is meaningless in the wind;
arms wide open to reduce my rate of descent and embrace the rush at the same time.
