They uttered all the words he wanted to hear.
Excitement tore at him from within.
The big rush of adrenaline he felt
Propelled him onto clouds
Dark with his pride.
Upon them he stood,
Until they fell as shame.
What a rude awakening he had,
When his body struck the ground.
Ouch! They weren’t in sight, and onto their next.
