I Let You Fall
Sun, 05 Apr 2015
Everything's off kilter. Upside downside. A half smile pulls you off balance. The floor seems to jellify. Your feet form a v, your mouth an o as you turn your standing to steps. Delight lights up your eyes and magnetises. Wandering compass. One foot before the other one, my son. I hold back and let you fall and turn your safety to sacrifice. Plump thighs bear up well and you're back up again. Unsmiling. Focusing. Experienced. I move my hand away. Watch it narrow in your eyes to a question mark. To fall or to fly? With this sacrifice, one day you'll turn your steps to strides.
