Standing, arms crisscrossed as the dead, I stand.
And now she let's lose in soft lips a coo
"I'll catch you"
She's waiting, but I'm still standing
what -what if she doesn't?
Will I plummet to the fate of a broken skull?
What if she misses, or I am too heavy?
What happens then?
What if she's too far back? Do I die on the pavement?
What if she is distracted?
What if that bird way over there attacks such a lovely face?
What if ninjas pounce,
or lightning strikes,
and by god, what if a man eating spider plucks her off the ground?
"C'mon" she says
"I have you" she says
But what if she doesn't.
What if she is a liar?
What if I don't fall back.
What does that make me?
Sitting in a dark room too scared to find a light switch
for there is a chance it may not exist.
"Take a chance" She begs.
So I let go
and I fell.
