Falling For You

Of white rabbits, well, I have chased one or two.
As for filthy, flirty frogs, true – I’ve kissed a few.
Now I jump with both feet, the world fades from view.
I’m falling – falling further in love with you.

Deeper, deeper, descending, down into this hole.
Falling faster, faster, for love knows no control.
Catching cliches as I go: “Two parts of one soul!
Broken before but with you finally feel whole!”

Leave logic lingering above, love steps up to bat.
This is what true love feels like – well, fancy that!
Falling can’t stop grinning, look like a Cheshire Cat.
It’s mad, I tell you – now where did I leave my hat?

Falling further, faster still, love made me a leaper.
See gran gliding past me, yells: “This one’s a keeper!”
“Gran, good to see you! Thought you’d met the Reaper?”
No reply, just the hole & I, love growing deeper.

Finally after falling forever, find feet & land.
Sun a glistening golden globe, the floor shifting sand.
You are there with me, you smile & take my hand.
I’ll always love you, though they’ll never understand.

You say you love me too & I know you say it true.
Lead & I’ll follow, through a Wonderland made for two.

    1. Aw, thank you. πŸ™‚ I’m incredibly shy, so wasn’t sure whether to post. Glad I did.

      If you like any more of my poems (as you liked this one I recommend “Running Man” or “Sleeping Beauty & M.E” from my chart) then I’d really appreciate if you Followed my site. Thanks again.

      1. Thanks for the recommendations, I’ll make sure to have a look around πŸ™‚

        I already hit the “Follow” button… I hope we’ll see you in the Cove someday too πŸ˜‰

    1. Thank you. πŸ™‚ Hopefully my fiancΓ©e will like it when she’s feeling well enough to read it (going through a bad patch with her M.E recently).

      I hope you like some of the other poems on my site. Rather than just reading the most recent, I recommend checking out the pieces in the “Top Ten” chart on my home page, such as “Sleeping Beauty & M.E”.

    1. Pleased you liked it so much. πŸ™‚ Hope you don’t mind me asking but any chance you’d mind sharing it on your site someday? I’d be happy to share any of your new pieces on my site too.


    1. Thank you for your comment. Thankfully capable of writing happy poems nowadays.

      If you like enough of my pieces to warrant doing so, I’d appreciate it if you Followed my site. The Top 10 chart is a good place to start & as well as poetry, one of my short stories is on there that you may like: “Beauty Fades From the Train”.

  1. I love the happy, madcap rhythm of this falling into the hole of loving someone unreservedly…..can feel the thrill, the excitement and the dizzying breathlessness of it all πŸ™‚

    1. Thank you for your feedback. Hopefully my fiancΓ©e will like it just as much. Still waiting for her to read it. Phoebe has M.E (see “Sleeping Beauty & M.E” & “In the Darkened Room” on my site) & is going through a rough patch with it recently. Something nice for her to read when she feels able to anyway. πŸ™‚

      If you haven’t already done so, I’d really appreciate it if you Followed my site. Perhaps Sleeping Beauty & M.E (https://philipcraddockwriter.wordpress.com/2015/09/14/sleeping-beauty-m-e/) or In the Darkened Room (https://philipcraddockwriter.wordpress.com/2016/10/28/in-the-darkened-room/?wref=tp) could be the test as to whether it’s worth a Follow? If you’ve already Followed, thank you for doing so.

    2. Hmm…unsure why they’re not working for you. You can find those pieces via the “Top Posts & Pages” chart, to the right on my site. I’m pleased that you already planned on reading some more of my pieces. Thank you. πŸ™‚ The chart’s probably a good place to start when you do.

      1. Ah. Yes, mobile phones can be a touch random! Thanks for your feedback about the links. They ‘re showing as links on my laptop. Going to try logging out of my Word Press account though in case that’s a factor as to why they’re working for me.
