I stumbled in love
with you, she said
because I’ve always
had this great fear
of falling. It must
come from my childhood,
though I can’t recall
any specific incident,
just the deep bruises
my parents left
when they fell,
without warning
out of the love
I thought had
to last forever.

One thought on “AMOUR OR LESS

  1. Congratulations on this beautifully crafted reflection on love. I’ve read it several times, because it merited rereading. (Would you mind if I were to suggest a comma after ‘without warning’?)
