Penny's Dropped (revised)

I've fallen out of like with you;
no longer do I care
to ride our cycles through the woods
in search of teddy bears.
I've fallen out of like with you;
frustrated by your games
of hockey in that little skirt;
blowing in the winds of change.
We've fallen
under witches
spells; thrown
money into
wishing wells;
spent aeons
collecting crabs
and shells
but now there's
something I
must tell
I've fallen out of like with you;
time to remove kid gloves.
I've fallen out of like with you
and landed up in love.
