National Poetry Month Day Sixteen

Prompt:  Write a twelve line poem about a relationship (friend, romantic, family) using some or all of these words that deal with “reversing:” about face, u-turn, 180, flip-flop, turnaround, withdraw, reel in, back pedal, second thoughts, cold feet, null and void, unsay, call off.

ONE-EIGHTY

This is the part where we jump out of the airplane.
 I’m having second thoughts.
You’re getting cold feet?  This will be fun.
If I agreed with you we’d both be wrong.
Aw, you’re never too old to learn something stupid.
Pilot! U-turn this bird. I’m calling it off.

You can’t back out now.
I’ll just go home and zoom in on Google Earth real fast.
Nope.  Your anxiety is null and void.
I officially withdraw from this challenge.
Well then, just stand here and hold this ripcord.
Stop pushing!  Hey…..
