Won’t You Join Me

I’m probably getting ahead of myself,

but I’m already falling.

I can’t help it. 

The feeling you give me 

is something I’ve never felt before,

only heard about 

in songs, movies, and books. 

Like most new things,

it’s both exciting

and terrifying. 

There are just as many examples 

of failed relationships

as successful ones 

in art 

and in my family.

But I’m willing to take that risk 

if you are. 

I’m already falling, so 

won’t you join me

on the way down?

I promise 

that your heart 

would be safe with me.
