Slipping into a safety net
of a lovers arms
once again
bring fear
am I ready to step
off the diving board
tottering... I could lose my balance
fall and I could
lose myself
I take my stance
waiting for the push
waiting to leap
as life moves around me
and under and from above
time stands still
and people watch
from a distance
how will she score
will she win
and the race begins...
