Poem #3 Pantoum for Love

No 30/30 would be complete withoout a pantoum.

Pantoum for love

Do you love me? Do you love me?
Did I ever say I didn’t?
No, but I thought you couldn’t.
That didn’t mean I wouldn’t.

Did I ever say I didn’t?
Perhaps while I was sleeping?
No, but I thought you couldn’t.
I drank ginger tea with honey.

Perhaps while I was sleeping?
I forgot to change the sheets.
I drank ginger tea with honey.
They stuck and smelled of you.

I forgot to change the sheets.
And I didn’t do the laundry.
They stuck and smelled of you.
A little like my father.

And I didn’t do the laundry.
I finished all the soda.
A little like my father.
I’ll buy you some tomorrow.

I finished all the soda.
Don’t know why I’m always thirsty.
I’ll buy you some tomorrow.
Do you think we’ll be together?

Don’t know why I’m always thirsty.
Your name sticks to my tongue.
Do you think we’ll be together?
For as long as we are breathing.

Your name sticks to my tongue.
I wish that I could change it.
For as long as we are breathing,
Do you love me? Do you love me?
