Have you ever had one of those tumultuous relationships where the love seems to perfectly balance the desire to escape!?

 

Misses

 

I push her off the cliff

Seize her hand

Her eyes reflect fear

Soles at right angles

We balance less than a second

Dance insanely, minutely

Goodbye slackens our faces

I collapse to my knees

Then my belly

 

This dying move becomes our first breath

 

I am stable like this

She climbs my arm, over me

Stands

Cries

Kicks me in the ribs and over the edge

Grabs my leg
