Love is a Leap of Faith with or without someone. Poem from "Love, Life and Evisceration" by Porle Joen

Leap of Faith

The wind laughs at me
with condescending accusations
though I pity its ignorance.
It will never experience
such torrential damage
nor will it feel exhilaration.

Hypocritical jabs from
the gaping canyon below
cannot discourage my resolve.
You watch me from the other side,
begging me not to step
into the hopeless abyss.

No decision remains unanswered
for behind is dusty storms
and forward is oblivion.
I will fall into the depths with
only one hope to live.
That you will jump too.

Love is a leap of faith indeed, but worth the jump..We gain so much more than we lose more often than not..A delightful emotive read..\0/x
