Photographs and memories

Photographs on the wall

Wall of my life

Wall of memories

Memories from day one

Memories to last a lifetime

Lifetime of challenges

Lifetime with you

You and me against the world

You the love of my life

Life as we know it

Life as we make it

It was wonderful

It was different

Different experiences

Different places

Places we’ve seen

Places we’d like to come back

Back to reality

Back to where we are

Are we to give up?

Are we to carry on?

On and on we go

On towards old age

Age of wisdom

Age of togetherness

Togetherness we are

Togetherness through thick and thin

Thin when I first met you

Thin slice we share

Share and share alike

Share the love

Love me tender

Love me true

True or false

True to our memories

Memories that were fun

Memories that were challenging

The Blitz Poem, a poetry form created by Robert Keim.

This form of poetry is a stream of short phrases and images with repetition and rapid flow.

Begin with one short phrase, it can be a cliché. Begin the next line with another phrase that begins with the same first word as line 1. The first 48 lines should be short, but at least two words.

The third and fourth lines are phrases that begin with the last word of the 2nd phrase, the 5th and 6th lines begin with the last word of the 4th line, and so on, continuing, with each subsequent pair beginning with the last word of the line above them, which establishes a pattern of repetition.

Continue for 48 total lines with this pattern, And then the last two lines repeat the last word of line 48, then the last word of line 47.

The title must be only three words, with some sort of preposition or conjunction joining the first word from the third line to the first word from the 47th line, in that order.

There should be no punctuation. When reading a BLITZ, it is read very quickly, pausing only to breathe.
