I Love You: A Pantoum

You whispered in her ear
the only truth you knew;
you didn't have to fear
because she knew it, too.

The only truth you knew
was really just a hope;
because she knew it too,
it wasn't a mere trope—

was really just a hope.
You didn't have to fear—
it wasn't a mere trope
you whispered in her ear.
