The Fall

Lips to lips, a soul to kiss
To rouse you from a peaceful sleep.
I look into your quiet eyes
And drink you in, but never too deep.

For I could lose my steady footing,
Precariously balanced, I risk it all.
Should I step back to assured safety,
Or take a leap and brave the fall?

I feel a sense of vertigo
As I balance upon the edge,
Of whispering the three small words
That only lovers pledge.

Your smile envelopes me, head to toe,
In a soothing warm embrace.
I feel a flutter in my stomach,
And a blush upon my face.

I lose my grip, my fingers slip,
You’re all I’ve ever craved.
I’m falling for you, hard and fast,
No chance of being saved.
