Five.

This is how I fall in love –

With eyes wide open.

I want to look at 

Your face

As we free fall into 

Open space.
Four. 

This is how I fall in love –

By giving much more

Than I could

By giving much more

Than I should

And still left thinking

When would the day be

When 

You’d have enough

Of me not being enough. 
Three. 

This is how I fall in love –

By holding both of your hands. 

And

I apologize if

At times

I hold your hand too tight

I’m just scared that 

You

Might drift away,

That you might get blown by

A passing breeze. 
Two. 

This is how I fall in love –

With eyes wide open

My eyes focused on your face

As we free fall

Into open space.

But still very much aware

Of the approaching

Ground,

Of the eventual 

Crash,
Know that I do my best

To keep the demons

At bay

But the ground…
Here comes the ground. 
One.

This is how I fall in love –

By counting down

Beginning from infinity

Praying all the while

To never reach

The end

Of what we have. 
But

Damn it. 

I always do.

This is how I fall in love.

Zero.
