To _____ (Pantoum)

I've never felt the ground swell under me
(though many times confusing love and lust)
swept off my feet, as if swept out to sea,
to lose control to feelings I don't trust.

Though many times confusing love and lust
I've wondered what it's like to not be free,
to lose control to feelings I don't trust,
and laying bare my soul for you to see.

I've wondered what it's like to not be free,
to show you all the things I fear I must,
and laying bare my soul for you to see,
or leaving all of this to turn to dust.

To show you all the things I fear I must,
swept off my feet, as if swept out to sea,
or leaving all of this to turn to dust—
I've never felt the ground swell under me.
