Poetry

Rip Cord

Loving you feels

like leaping without a chute.

All at once

Exhilarating, terrifying, and the truth.

We step over the threshold willingly welcoming

the free fall

clinging

to all our hopes, dreams, and that one we hold dear.

You pull the rip cord on my heart

opening a canopy so wide

there’s room for both of us inside.

Our bodies intertwine.

Spinning through vast space and time

until our shadow casts a net over that place

we’ll collectively feel our roots again.

And we jump again, and again, and again.

Standard
