What if you fell and there was no safe net?

There are two ways to think of this question; literally and metaphorically. The usual result of  an actual fall could vary according to the distance from the ground and your luck.

The other fall though is more dramatic. Especially when you are in love. When you fall in love and you have doubts, when you do not know whether the other person feels the same or when the fall becomes final and you know that the other person does not feel like you do.

“I can not respond to your feelings” is a phrase that can work as an arrow and cut your body into two halves. And the pain is excruciating. It feels like your flesh holds together the two pieces while your brain boils in agony and your face is filled with tears. And then it is the second fall, you feel stronger. You survived the first fall after all…

And the third… oh the third time you wish you were more careful and no fall at all would have taken place.

There is a wonderful song called say something…

“Say something I am giving up on you

And I will swallow my pride
You’re the one that I love
And I’m saying goodbye”

I guess at some point you decide not to fly anymore, not to trust again, but the heart and life keep calling for the fall. And you just wish just this time there was a safe net…
