Reckless abandon, back before fear;
She knew he was leaving, but not for how long.
He always played with her on those days.
She knew he would come back.
He always did.
She had no fear of flying away from or toward him
She had no fear of being out of control.
She trusted still.
She had no fear of falling
Or spinning, when someone twisted the rope.
Soon she will fall.
Soon she will spin.
Soon she won’t trust.
Soon she will need control.
Soon she will fear.
