The Fall - Poem by Arta Krasniqi

He told me
Not to be afraid
Of heights
And I wasn't
You see
He didn't know
But I fell for him
The way you fall
From those
Fictional buildings
In your dreams
That are far above
The clouds
I fell for him
Just like that
Because those kinds of falls
Never hurt
There is no air pressure
You just float
In the air
Because I knew
It wouldn't hurt
Because I knew
That eventually
I'd wake up...

    In English the word fall also means the season of Autumn when leaves fall from trees, so I didn't know what to expect when I clicked on this poem. What I found was the longest free fall I have ever experienced, and the poem is written in a long skinny line that seemed to duplicate the actual falling. You describe the fall with precise details that make it kinetic. But what I found running through the imagery was a sense of trust. The speaker trusts the man she is with at this moment, and that is a bottom line requirement for any future relationship. Will this love grow? I don't know - Stick around and it may show. (I find myself unconsciously quoting an old BEATLES song by
    George Harrison - but it fits the context!) Well, if they do fall in love, they can look back to this moment of trust and excitement as the auspicious beginning.
