Five Minute Friday: Fall

Five Minute Friday

Fridays around here mean many things.  Coffee and a pastry on the way to school.  Classroom tidying.  The delicious moment when the weekend begins.  And linking up with Lisa-Jo for 5 Minute Friday.  Five minutes to write, to think, to feel...

This weeks word is 'fall'.

GO.

For so long I played it safe.

In a world where I'd been hurt so many times, it was easier to toe the path of least resistance.  Lest I fall.

Having leapt before and been greeted by nothing but off kilter landings and the bruises they bring, I lived in a way that kept me safe.  Kept me grounded.  Kept me alone. With all the risks of falling, why bother at all?

I was happy...ish.  I thought sticking with gravity, staying safe, being sensible was the way to go.  So I read my books, sang my songs, loved my friends and kept my heart in a place where falling was not an option.

And then you came along.  And with every smile, every in-joke, every quiet moment I felt a thaw.  A shift.  A longing to leap. And the falling didn't seem so scary anymore.

I'm so glad I fell for you.  I hope I, I hope we, never reach the ground.

STOP.

Thank you for your comment - I do read them all but it may take me a little while (a couple of days) to respond during busy times. I love reading what you have to say!

Have a wonderful day!

About Me

I believe in 80s pop, 90s teen movies, and proper thank you notes. I just like smiling...smiling's my favourite.

I write here about London, food, books & travel, and a lot more besides. I'm never happier than when having adventures, cooking for friends, or lost in a good book.
