Free fall

from top floor

A change of heart


Too bad

Too late

  1. Once you leap there is no turning back; you must fall. Only if you survive do you get a chance to make a change for another time. This is so great ๐Ÿ™‚


      1. You are welcome, Mara…I live on Earth, my friend, nothing depresses me anymore ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚


          1. Indeed! My recent posts are somehow a bit positive. But majority of my fictions for the past few months are really disturbing! ๐Ÿ˜€ I somehow signed out because its holiday! Haha


  2. …wow… that must suck to be changing your mind during the fall :-/ !!! I’d imagine the fall being so nice and beautiful, with the wind in your hair, that you’d almost be thinking *once more!*… Too bad we’ll never know…


    1. …btw – I can’t get your poem out of my head – I think I’d need to fill a page in my art journal with it ๐Ÿ˜‰ I also had to think of the French movie “hate” – do you happen to know it? It starts very dramatic – a voice telling a story about a man that falls from a tall building. The end of the story is unforgettable – the thoughts of the jumper get explained – wait, I found it here for you: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Uz9vgtXq_Hs


      1. I’m genuinely sorry that you got my poem stuck in your head ๐Ÿ˜ฎ I hope my latest poem, also featuring a dead man, won’t give you more nightmares. I obviously love to kill my characters ๐Ÿ˜‰ The film you mention looks so interesting that I’ve just started downloading it to watch…

        1. Oh no – don’t be sorry at all!!! That’s what art is all about – if you manage to touch somebody’s mind then you’ve done it very well, right ๐Ÿ™‚ ? Oh really? Fantastic!!! It’s SUCH a good dramatic movie and very weird and whimsical in its own way… Let me know what you thought of it, and enjoy it!!!


    2. It’s definitely an intriguing thought – to think what a person who jumps thinks and wonder if the jumper changes her/his mind or just “enjoys” the fall. And even worse when the jumper didn’t want to jump but fell accidentally. Now I’m scaring myself, ha…

      1. Oh I totally get you!!! The thought always crosses my mind when standing next to high cliffs – what if the wind blows me off and I’m falling? Would I spend the last seconds freaking out or try to make the “best” out of it and “enjoy” what it’s like to fall freely…?! WICKED X-D !!!
