"It is hard to fail, but it is worse never to have tried to succeed." Theodore Roosevelt

I love the water, as blue as the sky.
I love to swim, but only inside.
I love when it's cold, so that it makes me move faster.
I love how I fly, and the water seems to rapture.
I love to dive, but not off the board.
For I am afraid, of how it feels to soar.
How the water seems so far away, and maybe I'll bump my head and forget yesterday.
So you see I have a slight fear, a fear of heights that's oh so real.
But I still try, even as my eyes become unfocused and my legs start to shake.
And maybe, just maybe.
One day, my fear of heights, will evaporate.

This one is really good.  I was slightly confused at the first few lines because of the title, but it made the poem that much more interesting! Very nicely done!

I love how the poem starts off very vaugely and then becomes more clear. You are pretty good at this. Try freestyle poetry sometime.
