Poised and waiting . Throw caution to the wind . Ignore the many voices in your head , telling you that it is utter madness . A twinge of doubt . A fractional hesitation as a thousand thoughts play havoc with your mind . What ifs ? Maybes … Spontaneity wins the day . An adrenaline fuelled impulse drives you . Push everything aside and take the plunge . Indulge in a careless disregard . A moment of wildness , unrestraint . Recklessness your ally in these seconds of freedom . Terra firma rises up to meet you . You hurtle forward to make its acquaintance . At the last minute , you are snatched away .
