“Friendship is born at that moment when one person says to another: "What! You too? I thought I was the only one.”
― C.S. Lewis

Two steps and a jump,
Winding up your arm,
Pushing your hands for the thump,
Snapping down your forearm,

All together in mere seconds,
After going through the motions a hundred times,
the spike is a weapon,
that wins the game sometimes

The spasmodic sensational shock,
Of contacting perfectly,
It hurtles down as a war hawk,
it’s what gets many into universities

An absolute volleyball swing.

Like the poem! I've never played volleyball before so, the descriptive words really helped!
