the business of falling


I have been falling in love lately. It’s felt great. It hasn’t felt scary. But sometimes this person is (at least for me) hard to read, if I take them at their word then we feel the same. But I know we are also very different people, the way we communicate, the way we show our interest in each other, it’s very much a dance we are learning. I don’t plan to grip my heart so tightly that I can’t let it go to the right person but I also want to be sure it’s in good hands. Right now, listening to my gut, I want to feel it out a little longer and see how it goes. My thoughts seem to always rest on this person and when I consider whether I’m falling too soon and need to step back, there is an ache that holds me still and tells me to wait.
