The Fall

The Fall

Fall onto this couch with me. Let’s fall together, in each other’s arms. Pretend like we lost our balance- but find happiness in knowing we didn’t. We did it on purpose, and it’s funny and joyous so we giggle on the way down, and for the first few seconds after we land. Then after a few seconds of stillness we shift ourselves as to be more comfortable and to better look at each other. When we achieve this we become very serious. Feel unsure and nervous about this position we are in. Self-conscious and uncertain about looking at the other’s face, and having our own face looked upon in such a way. It’s just different but we know there is no reason to feel unsure- because inside you know they want to be there just as much as you. A few moments of this looking, this most sincere caring look- and with each second that passes, days and weeks of questions and wonderings become answered (in a good way); hopes become confirmed.

A slight smile comes across both of our faces, and then we look aside, because a big smile is not permitted just yet (but give it time, one day soon). It was great falling with you, we’ll do it again soon. But unfortunately, it won’t be the same. It won’t be as good as the first time, with its newness and uncertainty. We’ll fall again though.. it won’t be quite as good… but it never is.
