Beautiful to Him (Pantoum)
By: Amanda Bee

She's so very beautiful to him
Watching her as she falls asleep
He desires to fulfill her every whim
His love for her runs so very deep

Watching her as she falls asleep
Places a kiss upon her exquisite lips
His love for her runs so very deep
From the depths of his core to his fingertips

Places a kiss upon her exquisite lips
Runs his hand down her sultry curves
From the depths of his core to his fingertips
He doesn't even have to say the words

Runs his hand down her sultry curves
Lies down beside her, drawing her near
He doesn't even have to say the words
She whispers, "I love you too," into his ear

Lies down beside her, drawing her near
He desires to fulfill her every whim
She whispers, "I love you too," into his ear
She's so very beautiful to him

*PANTOUM: A poem in a fixed form, consisting of a varying number of four-line stanzas with lines rhyming alternately; the second and fourth lines of each stanza are repeated to form the first and third lines of the succeeding stanza, with the first and third lines of the first stanza forming the second and fourth of the last stanza, but in reverse order, so that the opening and closing lines of the poem are identical .

    This poem's structure exactly describes the kind of love we should be in: In never-ending circles. This is the first time reading a pantoum, but it was a very lovely piece and the repetition enhanced the feelings of the poem instead of toning it down. :) Keep writing! 5/5
