And I'm Falling

I'm falling

I'm falling to sleep

right were I am

right were I stand

I'm falling to the right side

And I'm falling to sleep

Before I hit the floor

my eyes are closing

my knees are bending

and I'm falling

I'm falling down on the floor

And I'm falling to sleep

Source

I open my eyes

My head is aching

I've been asleep

and now

I'm trying to stand up

but my knees are weak

I'm falling

I'm falling again

I'm falling to sleep again

Source

I'm dreaming

and in my dream

I'm walking on an icy road

It leads me to a wood

where the trees are covered with snow

and I see you

Source

The only time I see you

is in my awkward dreams

and I know

that the future

is nothing like the past

when I was falling

I was falling

in love with you

I open my eyes now

and I feel much stronger

My knees are strong

My head feels light

and it's a new day

Source

I'm not falling

I'm not falling in love again

I'm not falling in love with you again

only in my dreams

but I can't seem to fall

I can't seem to fall asleep

And I'm falling

Very beautiful and clever write here. Love your photos. They actually remind me of recent paintings my son just painted. Especially of the snow-covered trees leaning a bit. Wow. Really enjoyed the read.

Voted up ++++ and sharing

God bless, Faith Reaper

Faith Reaper, I'm glad you liked the photos. I love taking pictures, but my camera isn't the best. Thank you so much for stopping by, voting and sharing. I appreciate it very much.

Hi Bill, thank you. I'm glad you stopped by and I'm glad you liked it. :) I guess I'm in a writing mood, but right now I'm painting toilet rolls with my children. It's nice to have some time to be creative.

Wonderful poem. Great photos just right for the verses. It's always tough falling in and out of love.

Good morning Miss M from Colin and his cats, Tiffy and Gabriel, after night shift at lake erie time ontario canada 7:55am - I hope all is well with you and your beautiful family these days and I love these dreamy words - they seem to go so well with your evocative images - and that is how we look right now by the lake in a white snow covered world.

Sending my warm sincere wishes to you my friend

Hi Colin, Tiffy and Gabriel, nice to see you. Thank you for your kind comment. The sun is shining and we have much snow, too. It's a beautiful, but cold day. My four cats prefer to stay inside.

I'm sending you warm wishes back. Thank you and have a nice day! :)

This is a trip! I love the photos from falling to not, but I get the feeling you'd rather still be falling.... in love.

Hi bravewarrior, I'm not sure. Thank you! :)

Hi Made:

Best I could do thinking of snow from so, so long Austrian ago

Falling is a downward shift

Love is in question in your relocation

I am engaged with your icy drift

And seek warm moments from your plight

Where floors are used for dancing

Slow tangos of moody moments that are just right

Not meant for danger

To your very clever head

Ausseye, thank you, thank you! I love reading your comments. I'll return to HubPages in a few weeks to write more poetry - maybe about a hot, Finnish tango on a cold winter's day. :)
