My wife and I recently had our three-year anniversary, and as a result, I've been reminiscing about our wonderful, quirky, very personal wedding. Much of it was inspired by bits and pieces we picked up on Offbeat Bride.
We are also huge book nerds. I recently published a love poem inspired by that fact, and I thought it might make a great reading for other bibliophiles like us!
Of course, Offbeat Bride was the first place I thought of sharing it, since this community was so wonderful to us as we planned our own wedding.
Book nerds, rejoice! Here's the poem for your wedding:
Some stories adopt the same arc
exposing, rising, peaking, falling, and unraveling
ours is only the intrigue
beautiful and wild, forever climbing
some books experience the same fate
printed, opened, devoured, discarded, and neglected
ours is written in blood
yours and mine, forever commingled
you are my life
i am your book
don’t ever stop writing
