Falling

You drew me in instantaneously
and captured my attention with words,
intellectual words, intriguing words, sweet words.

It wasn’t long before I found myself falling for…

You telling me how beautiful I was
How amazing you found my body to be
How much you thought of me daily.

I began falling for…
Your good morning texts, our afternoon chats,
your sweet goodnight phone calls.

I began falling for…
Your plans for a future with me
Your plans to “make me your lady”
Your plans for an intense love until we die,
“physically, mentally and spiritually”.

You asked that I be vulnerable
and ready to fall in love, no guards
So I began  falling for…

Your words.
Words that held no meaning.
Words that preceded no actions.
Words that still gave me butterflies
Words that had me falling for a fable.
