I see myself most clearly when I look into your eyes.
I feel the glow of sunshine when you hold me in your arms.
I taste pure honey’s sweetness when I kiss your sweet red lips.
Your love electrifies me when you kiss my fervid lips.
Please dive into the ocean that you see in my blue eyes,
And take your solace in the world you find inside my arms.
I’m never more at home than when we’re in each other’s arms.
The whole world fades from view each time a kiss connects our lips.
Though tongues are silent, talk of love shines through each other’s eyes.
Our private body language read through eyes, and arms, and lips.

Three tercets followed by a monostich.
There is no set rhythm or line length, but the lines should pretty much be isosyllabic (all have the same number of syllables).
Instead of rhyme, the tercets end with lexical repetition—three words that are repeated in each stanza in varying order. All three words also appear in the last line
The word order is: 1-2-3, 3-1-2, 2-3-1, (1-2-3)
