No Ordinary Love

Inspired by You + Me’s haunting cover of No Ordinary Love


Reaching across

a distance

more formidable than

miles

fathoms

leagues

you reached out

your hand

to where I stood

alone

in all my protective

titanium armor

trembling

afraid

You offered me nothing less

than your beating heart

Nothing more than this moment

this chance

You said

Jump

I won’t let you fall

Your eyes holding truth

your sweet smile steady

your voice so full of

strength

hope

trust

that even I

believed I could fly

That we could fly

So I jumped. . .
