Leap, surprise, faith these 3 words are from http://www.sarahelizabethhill.com Sorry for the delay in this one, it was more a challenge than I first thought.
Sarah and my readers, I hope that you enjoy.
A surprise to learn my leap of faith
would be to tumble into your arms
against all better judgement; clearly I have none
however your embrace seems the most comforting
Why? because I know you, infinitesimal trust
your arms outstretched almost pleading
saying I’d be safe; cajoling with soft words
~ to simply cross that line
but I have been there once before ~ trusted
if memory serves me right; physical scars none
but you created reservations of who I was
and yet ~ I wish to fall again, perhaps in the hope
so, you can walk me down this path again
convince me of no ridicule or seething taunts
but this time unbeknown to you
I bring a safety net ~ in case I accidentally fall

I love this! I think my favorite line is, “and yet ~ I wish to fall again, perhaps in the hope you’ve changed” because who hasn’t thought that at least once in their life?
Thank you darling – I think many of us have been there, in the hope of change. xx
I bring a safety net – in case I accidentally fall. I love it!!!!
🙂 Hope your having a great day, Mumsy. Love to you. Paula xxxx
Thank you 🙂 and hmm have had better. You have been quiet madam? xx
I have, haven’t I! Lol About to to my brothers for dinner. Will email you tomorrow. Hugs xxxxxx
Very well done RM, I like the surety the persona has, to be possibility of pain again from an old relationship.Beautifully expressed.
Thank you Summer (like the new gravatar btw). The unknowing going into the battle in the face of adversity, hoping for a different outcome. We wish her well 🙂
New gravatar? Ahhh….Thank you….
Leaps of faith are no surprise in the end because we are going against our better judgement to start with….. been there…
Great job Mumsy and apologies for the pessimist in me 😉 xxxx
Thank you Max, I understand the pessimist 😉 yes how many times do we go back and try in the hope that things have changed..and they don’t. xxx
We all keep falling back in the same hopes…. Hope is a real bad thing, makes us vulnerable 😦
Where have you been?!! 🙂 Welcome back sweet – I hope all is okay in your world. Yes sadly we do fall back…guess it’s human nature to try. 😦 Thank you for reading and welcome back to the fold. xx
Hey Mumsy I missed you a lot 🙂 Yes everything is okay in my world…just been a bit hectic. It feels great to be back 🙂 *hugs*
I am glad sweet on all counts 🙂 xx
nice – and happy the safely net was in place at the end )
thanks hun, yes one should always carry one 😉 xx
You’ve left me wondering how this will end – well/ not well? Wish I knew. And what’s her safety net? You really pull the reader in with this one.
In my head – not well.. as I think her ‘safety-net’ was a rather shiny blade…. Thank you I am glad you were pulled in 😉 x
I wish I hadn’t asked now.
