Eyes locked not able to pull apart
Fingers trembling matching the beating of my heart.
Removing clothes one by one feeling quite shy
Never thinking I would feel this high
There is no control and no going back
I am in to deep and sense I do lack.
The power that pulls together is so so strong
Something this exciting cannot be so wrong.
Tongue moistens and flicks around lips
Muscles twitch and tremble down to the hips
Breath holding this is like a test and I can do it
Feeling dizzy, eyes blurring, I need to sit.
Knees trembling can I take the leap?
I’ll never forgive myself, I know I won’t sleep
Muscles are taut, my skin catching the light
This is it; it’s going to be tonight.
Looking round at the space and taking a deep breath in
I am falling I know my head is tucked in
My arms are stretched out to break the surface
As from the 3 meter board I dived with a purpose.
My fingers break the water followed by my arms shoulders and head
I have done I survived this thing that I dread.
I did it I took that knee trembling walk
I plucked up the courage my task I did not balk.
