she wears me upon
her withered hand:
an angel's halo
with no beginning or
end —
infinite.
she didn't like
metaphors
or goodbyes
but he brushed away the
drops of jupiter
twinkling on her
face,
promising to
return but it was
just a fool's
errand
and now i am
a memoir of
reminiscence;

because he is
dead but he is
not, he is
gone but he is
here, he is
a ghost
alive with
remembrance,
a memory preserved;

she wears me upon
her withered hand:
the crown of a
king lost in battle
and she
grazes me with her
lips and
trembles
because soon i
will be a
metaphor and
she will be the
goodbye.
written from the viewpoint of an old woman's wedding ring. the concept of infinity has been tugging at me recently; i think it's fascinating how some concepts and feelings can truly transcend the boundaries of time. even though her husband has died (and she is close to death), their love still lingers.

a timeless ring by ahintofwanderlust achieves poetic impact with stellar enjambment; the suggester is not wrong in saying it is "a beautiful concept written with thoughtful words" ( Suggested by saevuswinds and Featured by ShadowedAcolyte )
