#179

My feelings for you swing back and forth like a child on a swing set

Up – the joyful glee of soaring through the air

Pure happiness in the moment with you

Down – the uncertainty and the power of free-fall

Doubts racing past my eyes

The intensity scares me.

 

Will we go up again or will we tumble off the swing,

crashing to the mulch below,

leaving scars on our scratched-up knees like old

memories?
