Fear of Falling

My heart swells in my chest

So full I think it might burst

No one told me love was scary

Terrifying like looming on a precipice

Staring at this wide-open space

I’m not falling yet but it’s so close

I can taste the wind like honey on my lips

So I shut my eyes and try to imagine

The most comforting thing I can think of

And when my eyes open again

My heart as big as my fist stops just to start again

Because it’s you
