Momma didn’t tell me

 
How to balance on the tightrope of marriage.
 
Leaning one way, then another,
 
Struggling to stay on course,
 
An acrobat on the centerline.
 
Most of my life I have fallen
 
In and out of love with you.
 
Suddenly I am up here
 
Without a net
 
Wondering if I’ll survive
 
Or if we’ll survive.
 
I reach for you
 
And only touch air.
 
I am solitary on 
 
This precarious wire.
 
I am afraid.
 
And lonely.
 
Will you 
 
Catch me?
