Falling

tip-toeing to the precipice
cautious
i’ve fooled myself before
guarded thoughts are flimsy
in the fact of delicious
temptation

walking along the edge
acclimating
i’ve fooled everyone before
the illusion of balance
is convincing to the
imaginative

dancing right off the cliff
smiling
i’m done fooling myself
the pleasure of the fall
is worth any potential agony


This was not written in response to Jump (Daily Writing Prompt, September 2016), however, I think it fits!
