camera

if I close my eyes tightly
and hold my breath hesitantly
and stretch my arms tentatively
and tip forward,
allow myself
s l o w l y,
to fall

will you promise
not that you will always be there to catch me
(because that is impossible)
but that if I fall,
you will at least have been running
with your arms out?
