Terminal Velocity

If I had only known

how long it would take

to fall in love with you

I would not have waited.

I would have fallen straight away

and fallen thrillingly

without wanting to open the chute

yet knowing if I did not

it would all come to a sudden end.

So I declare to you now I love you

and won’t let another

moment go by without

being better at it than

ever I have been before.

Oh look, how fast the ground

approaches.

They’ll say I am the victim

of some hopeless tragedy,

but what do they know?

They’re standing on the

ground looking up.

I’m the one falling

faster, faster and faster.
