Loving someone is standing
precariously on the edge of the building,
ready to jump.
It is lying in a flooded bathtub holding your breath
until your lungs give out,
and driving to fast on a winding road
at 4 am in the morning,
with no destination.

But sometimes,
loving someone is taking a step back
from that ledge because someone said,
Or pushing yourself out of the water
and taking deep breaths of air after hearing
your daughter's laughter
down the hall.
And maybe loving someone means
stepping on the brake before the crash
because you realize that while one person may not love you.
someone else does.

Loving someone can kill you
or it can make your life worth living.
