This Crazy Love

I'm a writer, a poet, a dreamer. Born and raised in New York City. I now live in Daytona Beach, Florida with my wonderful cat Sid.

This crazy love of ours,

like a carousel out of control,

faster than a roller coaster.

You come and build me up,

put me on a pedestal,

then just as quickly,

you are gone

and I’m left waiting, waiting -

is it worth my time?


This crazy love of ours,

it comes and it goes -

spinning like a top.

You started it going,

you took my breath away,

now I wonder,

if one fine day,

I’ll be left alone

and aching.


This crazy love of ours -

Where did it start?

I think it was the day,

you came and took my heart.

Now my days cannot begin,

without a smile from you

and the days that start,

when you’re not here,

are the days,

that have no beginning

and no end.


This crazy love of ours,

has me waiting for the love letters,

that you promise to send –

when you go far away.

Day come and days go,

calendar pages turn,

you are nowhere to be found –

my world continues to go round and round.


This crazy love of ours,

has my heart beating double time,

my head spinning,

making me fly above the clouds,

come kiss me and set my feet on the ground.

Tell me that you love me

and make my happiness -

know no bounds

This crazy love of ours indeed!

Buddy Holliday is cool. Usual romantic touch and an apt way of describing it.

I was watching Bev water the garden last night and marveling at how far she and I have come in our relationship. It is a miracle we found each other and I am incredibly lucky.

Rasma, your early comparisons of the relationship with a carousel out of control going as fast as a roller coaster, and a spinning top were very effective mental pictures. The latter part of the poem seems to clarify how this relationship is struggling due to an apparent lack of commitment. It is the kind of relationship one should give a good deal of thought to since it is not fulfilling the promise mentioned. Thanks for sharing.
