I Leaned To Far

Reaching. A little farther.

I can do it. 

Past the ledge. A little more.

Feet slipping.

The splash should have been heard for miles.

Yet it wasn’t.
Sighing as I shake it off.

Wet and muddy.

Empty handed.

Need a new plan.
Maybe give up?

Just buy a new one?
One more try…

Metaphorically speaking. I often reach too far. I have found that getting back up gets easier each time. So keep trying, or change tactics. Love is bound to flow with grace and ease. (Should say life, not love, but autocorrect changed it. I feel it might be better that way. 😉)
