Do you ever feel broken bones before they happen?

Okay,

 

The big kid monkey bars.

Today was the day.

You pull yourself up until you're eye level with a row of metal bars and

 

You jump,

one    bar,

left  hand, 

next   bar, 

right hand, 

next    bar,

no    hand?

 

                                             Ground.

 

and the pain does not start immediately.  In fact, you are not really sure what's going

on until you look at your arm and realize there is now a second elbow 3 inches from

your original one, and you are supposed to feel something, anything, but the adrenaline

has kicked in and you are not really sure what to feel. 

 

 

The big kid relationship.

Today was the day. 

You pull yourself up until you are eye level with the most beautiful homan being you

have ever laid eyes on.

 

You jump,

one  hoop,

you're different religions, 

next hoop, 

distance, 

next hoop,

no communication?

                                   

                                           Ground.

 

and the pain does not start immediately.  In fact, you are not really sure what's going

on until you look at the last 2 years of your life and realize that you are no longer happy,

and you are supposed to feel something, anything, but the adrenaline is no longer kicking

in and you are not really sure what to feel. 

 

Do you ever feel broken bones before they happen?

Pretty self explanatory, comparing a relationship to falling off the monkey bars because both have high levels of anxiety and something usually ends up broken if you are not a skilled individual.
