The Ability to Dance on Water

The first blush of love
Can set aside our rational minds,
Voiding the laws of physics.
We float through the heavens
And dance across the waters
With no sense of consequences.

However, when reality intrudes,
It often brings gravity along as well,
Sending us crashing back to earth,
Leaving us drowning in heartache.

Ahh... that first blush of love is euphoric especially when it does not lead to heartache.
