they say being in love is climbing a tree

they say being in love is climbing a tree:

you crawl and climb

feel the rush in your veins

drink the air

the earth’s breath in your hair

you forget to inhale

exhale

your eyes water at the sun’s gold

your fingertips grip raw

& callused from holding tight

but you keep on

ascending

forgetting

to wonder

how you’ll get down.
