Free Fall

Standing on the edge
Discovering fears deep inside
The swirling abyss lies before me.
Beckoning,
Taunting,
Calling my name.

Slowly moving forward,
Hanging on with both hands, my eyes closed.
Afraid to slip,
Afraid to see.

A leap of faith:
Plunging into the unknown.
Total release.
Complete surrender.
Flying free.
Falling fast.
No holding back.

Knowing you’ll be there to catch me.

I love the structure you have used here - the short images really suspend time and give a sense of breathlessness. This is great, Tara.
