You can’t fall in love
Without first accepting the reality that you may be let down.
You can take precautionary measures before you jump
But at some point you have to simply fall and be okay with falling.
Not attached to a chord to pull you back up
Or with a parachute on your back in case it all goes wrong.
Love is hoping they will catch you
While knowing there’s a chance they won’t.
If you look before you jumped though
You will still fall, but soon you will learn to fly.
When you truly let go
They won’t need to catch you.
They will simply sprout wings of their own
Jumping, falling, and flying all the same.
