point of no return

at what point in the process 
of falling in love
is there a point of no return?

where holding back 
invites disaster
by fighting an irresistible 
momentum

like when you go off
too high a ski jump
and hold back
trying to stop 
arms windmilling
in midair


either way
there is a potential
to crash and burn

    True to life messages in these " I don't knows" Stephen, smile! either way there is a potential to crash and burn. This last line is a killer, man! Keep writing. Agape, Moses

    Falling in love is a thrill, but there's always the danger of getting hurt, Stephen. Maybe that's why people find it hard to establish relationships. Once I fall in love, it's hard for me to say goodbye. That's me you describe going too high off a ski jump. Great poem that seems to fit the moment now. Love, Carolyn

    Stephen, I really enjoyed this one and the picture you portrayed of falling in love like the crazy skier jumping too high. Great writing, my friend!
