Romantic Verse for Lover

Feel Safe with You



Safety Net

You are my safety net.

When I fall

Your arms

Like thick protective ropes

Catch and envelope me

Before sending me

Upwards

Again.



And next month

When you leave

For good

I will have to learn

To never fall…

Or to land well.




Not walking

The treacherous

Tight rope

That is Life


Is not an option.


Perhaps I can

Wear big skirts

That billow out

Like a parachute

When I fall.

Then the trick

Is to kick and

Coax the air

To propel me

Upwards

Again
