Love Song: not a sestina #amwriting #rhymingpoetry #new

I have been reading Elizabeth Bishop and playing with rhyming stanzas, but I think there is something missing here. I will have to look up a sestina again!  

Love Song  

I know you love me really

You just fight it

I should have made the tea

The way you like it  

I didn’t make the bed

And you were grumpy

The pillows were not plumped

Which made them lumpy  

If there’s a tear upon my face

Of course you’d swipe it

I should have made the tea

The way you like it  

And when you couldn’t sleep

It made you tired

You need your seven hours

It’s how you’re wired  

It’s like you’re a touch paper

And I light it

I should have made the tea

The way you like it  

So when you made the fist

I should have gone along

I’ve learnt to take the punches

In this love song  

I know that you feel better

When you fight me

How could you ever love

If you don’t like me?
