Falling - Poem by Anita Jonker

I knew it was a bad idea.

I knew it would hurt.

All the knowledge in the world could not stop my heart.

I knew it was foolish.

I knew it would burn.

Yet, we are attracted to the fire that bruises us most.

i know it is making me stumble
and the floor is growing nearer...
soon it will bring my


and all I can do is let it.
