Sleeping Beauty & M.E

Philip Craddock Writing Portfolio

Don’t usually do intros prior to posting my poetry or stories but this time I’ll make an exception.

I was recently told by a lovely lady named Phoebe that I’m so romantic that I even romanticise what she sees as the least romantic aspect of her: her condition, which is M.E.

M.E is a chronic condition which affects tiredness & the immune system. I’m going to be running a marathon in October on behalf of Action For M.E (the number one charity for the condition). If you’d like to learn more about the condition or sponsor me, you can do so by visiting my fund raising page at Alternatively, just read & hopefully enjoy the poem, which comes next.

As usual this is a work in progress piece. Perhaps appropriately I slept badly last night, so this poem may need a fair amount of editing to bring it up…

  1. Thank you for reblogging this poem. It’s still my girlfriend’s favourite one on my site due to how personal it is to her.

    Hoping to pick up another Follower or two – nice to write for a larger audience – and every reblog helps. 🙂
