|About the difficulty of stopping once you start to fall for her...|
Inertia (~~~ Denotes Change In Stanza) When i look on you (though you may flinch) i am aware of a spinning; and as i am careening i do wonder what youíre feeling-my heart is folding, contorting, and wandering, shaking and collapsing in your eyes. ~~~ The butterflies (if that is their name); they do comprise a keen surprise as these feelings rise. Wings do impact my stomachís walls; wincing from the enigmatically pleasurable pain iím falling into you (though you may resist) ever trying (impossible, wishing) to take you with me. ~~~ Will you come? No. When will i land? Where? I donít know. I do so plummet (hopeless, watched); toward some end. What end would make worth while this drop? ~~~ Why do men undertake such tasks? driven toward impossibility and holding to improbability pushing away tranquility with avarice for unattainability riding the envelope of capability that i might so plunge in the face of a possibility that my assumptions of hopelessness are wrong. ~~~ Though were you not so out of reach (stretching, trying, extending to and past boundaries set by some force which keeps away, with a painful indefiniteness i can scarcely bare, the fabled golden ring of which i may never be possessive, the paradigm of a happiness i should but may never know, the prize of my eternal endeavor; the bottom of this bottomless pit into which i continually decline) still would I find myself falling, dropping (headlong, without control) into the details the world was never meant to perceive (though angels have been said to walk the earth); drawn by a gravity of your face, inertia the smell of your hair.
