Something threw me

Back in the ring again,
gripping the saddle
to keep from being thrown
by all those latent fears
and desires.
Up and down,
back and forth,
and still I cling,
desperate to prove
I can ride this through.
And when the rocking stops,
there's still that knocking
in the knees: the body knows
something threw me
even though I thought
I was doing a good job
of hanging on...
