Precipice

The problem:
So miniscule.

One push.
Over the edge.
I pushed.
You fell.

Done.

I lay
On my back,
Savoring
What was such
A brief relief.

Who the hell knew you could fly?





For this weekend's prompt we're asking for exactly 33 words inspired by the following picture.  Good luck!

  7. this was my favorite all weekend..all I could think about reading it was "isn't that how it happens? In love, in life, in letting go. We push, they fall and we drink that in never thinking about them rising from it."

    I know that I got very deep with it, but it spoke to me and I just adored it.
