About the Poem
We all have our own ideas on what love is and the difference between being IN LOVE and LOVING someone. This is my definition of what it means to fall in love. Maybe this will make it easier to understand why some people are afraid to fall.

|Standing on the edge
Discovering fears deep inside
The swirling abyss lies before me.
Calling my name.
Slowly moving forward,
Hanging on with both hands, my eyes closed.
Afraid to slip,
Afraid to see.
A leap of faith:
Plunging into the unknown.
No holding back.
Knowing you’ll be there to catch me.
