If they give you ruled paper, write the other way

crossing a bridge
water rushing below
open my eyes
for the very first time
blink twice against
the harsh sunlight
fading into an orange pink
I lose my balance
for a split second
teeter over the edge
one wrong step
finds me soaring
over the edge
close my eyes
my final words
counting the seconds
as I fall
deep into the abyss
the world goes black
and I hear the splash
as my heavy body
someone grabs my ankle
dragging me under
as I fight to break free
emerge from the surface
and gulp the precious air
and you're there
whisking me away
in your arms
wiping the tears
from my wet face
I love you
the weight
dragging me down
below the bubbling surface
but saying those
three massive words
cuts the chains
I am free
across the bridge
