Emotional Bungee Jumping

I am not the sort
to work without a net,
more the belt AND suspenders type
when it comes to my heart.
So why do I find myself,
lips moists from your last kiss
taking a running leap
and YODELLING my way into a swan dive,
eyes wide open,
heat in my throat
and believing truly
that you will catch me
in the careful comfort
the small cave of wonders
we keep glimpsing.
You know i am not pushing you away
when I RUN,
just as I know
you are not rejecting me
when you try yet again
to understand how the gossamer
wound between us
with the enduring softness
of spider silk.
Jumping alone is a leap of faith...
but what do you call it
when two meet eyes,
join hands
and step off the edge together?

I'd call it a cult

I'm enjoying reading your work Sally, without having anything useful to comment in reply, and come by quite regularly. So thanks.
I think I've noticed your age tick up by one, so I'll risk that my memory isn't flawed, and wish you a happy birthday. I hope you and yours enjoyed it.
