Love Poem about Marriage

You Will Inspire Me Always And Forever

I find beauty and power in simplicity and repetition. This is my first attempt at creating a new poetic form: Looped 10 lines in a single stanza; each line building upon the last from one word increasing to five words then counts back down. The title is always the first and last word of the poem, separated by hyphen. While sacrificing creativity of titles, like haiku, they are less important than the author's attempt to convey a message of connection for the reader to discover. For Marcie!
