Immortality


Immortal essence that keeps you sane.
O I am the phantom within your mind
and within your being I wax and wane.
I have no boundaries, I am not confined.

O I am the phantom within your mind
for I am nourished from your every thought.
I have no boundaries, I am not confined.
I live every dream you have ever sought,

for I am nourished from your every thought.
O I am the spirit which reigns above.
I live every dream you have ever sought,
my immortal essence thrives on love.

O I am the spirit which reigns above.
I grant you peace and self control,
my immortal essence thrives on love.
I’m always here, your immortal soul.

I grant you peace and self control,
Within your being, I wax and wane.
I’m always here, your immortal soul.
Immortal essence that keeps you sane.


Author notes:

Pantoum
The Pantoum is a simple form yet more difficult to compose than the sestina. It is far more repetitive, for its defining rules are ABAB stanzas of four lines each, and the second and fourth lines of one stanza become the first and third of the next. It can be any number of stanzas long, but the ending line must be the same as the first. The result is a poem that takes two steps forward and one step back the entire way through, finally ending on the same note it started.

WINE comes in at the mouth
And love comes in at the eye;
That's all we shall know for truth
Before we grow old and die.
