Wedding Vows

I don’t know if I will ever be
as magnificent as you promise me I am,
but I promise I will seek to find
the man you see in me.
I will seek to find the God you praise.
I will work to carve away
what of me is base and lesser.
I will work to burnish and polish
that of me that is power and brilliance,
and I promise to wreak
what wondrous havoc we desire,
and bring about an apocalypse
worthy of us both.
