Marriage Vows – Our sestina - Carl Palmer

From this day forth I

will not be I while I’m with her

and she will not be she

while she’s with me.

For on this day, we

as a couple will be us.


Us,

not I.

We,

not her,

not me,

not she.


She

becomes us.

She and me,

I

and her,

become we.


We,

not she,

not her.

Us,

not I,

not me.


Me

is now we,

not I.

She

is now us,

not her.


Her

and me,

together, us.

Together, we,

she

and I.


Her, forever we.

Me and she,

us, forever, vow I.
