Taking The Plunge

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.
