how easy it is
to tumble
to fall
to leap without looking

how painful it is
to not be caught

how marvelous the feeling
of reckless abandon
how thrilling the first
look, touch, taste

how crushing the blow
the one you closed your eyes to
of reality, of the human
you were pretending was perfect

how serendipitous
the ways do seem
when newness and excitement
glimmer and gloss

how unfair, how unnerving
the unraveling of the magic
revealing the rudimentary workings beneath
