Beautiful

He called me beautiful.
In the middle of sex, but still -
he called me beautiful-

and I came
to believe him.

The use of "came" here is immense, because it captures both moment and history. The former reading is stronger than the latter--also probably more true--but the latter has more gravity. Anyway, yay.
