Leap of Faith

I stood tall.
Poised.
The sun wrapped my back in a rare comfort.
Reflections rippled and glimmered at my feet.
I dipped my head and stared through into the clear depth below.
All I saw was the colour.
A slight blue. Lucid and fresh.
Your eyes.
With a faithful breath I plunged clean and fast into your beauty.
Silence encased my vulnerable calm and refreshed my strength.
My body slowed and turned as I absorbed everything I saw in you.
Honesty. Passion. Knowledge.
Floating in your safety, I washed my soul and left my darkness fall beneath me.
I headed, new, towards the brightness above, breaking the surface with a dramatic and confident force.
Cold air pierced my skin and I rose into the sun,
Drenched with hope, holding a vision of a sky that mirrored a perfect blue.
Your eyes.
