Zelda's Inferno exercise: falling or diving?

Zelda's Inferno exercise: we collected words to make an individual wordlist for each person. Mine:

falling caffeine crawl brewing dance dive brimming formica

was he falling?
or diving?

it was question of intent and style
but once he was already in midair
he found it was a bit late to decide

falling diving dancing flying leaping --
or maybe he was only burning up
and would leave only ashes in his wake

but it was some dramatic verb, this love
not to be described by some tame verb
not crawling walking sitting or standing

it surely had to be a word with risk
an action that could end with injury
it's only danger that gives love its savor.
