In Your Place

by BlueJay   May 2, 2017

Your ring doesn't fit me anymore,
I tried yesterday when I
was getting ready to go grocery shopping -

I just wanted some hope.

But it wouldn't fit, it's so hard to believe
I knew you so long ago that it's already
two sizes too small - at least.

Incredible, isn't it?

Instead of wearing it with "meep"
facing out, I considered putting it
on a chain and wearing it always,

but I think that ruins it.

So now here I am with it in my pocket,
heading out to for work and I keep
patting it with my bruised wrist -

just to make sure it's here

in your place.

    I love the simplicity and sort of mystery in this. The reader can only guess about the ring and who it belongs to.
    Thank you for sharing this.

    A story very well told with a moving ending. Personally, I would like to see a little more imagery from a free verse write, but that doesn't lesson the quality of this piece.

    All the best,
