A very sad piece. I thought at first you were talking about an engagement ring and the missed the opportunity of love but i am thrown a little by the title. Im wondering if perhaps I have missed something significant and would love to hear more about your thoughts surrounding the title. Not to detract at all from the poem which is a very emotional piece with well cast visuals and emotional content and which is steeped with unrequited love. Milly x
Using the nickname of the person was inspired. For me I like a poem to inspire visually and emotionally and make me think about what im reading so the more I think about a poem the more I get from it. Thank you for letting me know because that adds yet another dimension Milly x
No problem! The poem actually isn't about an engagement ring, but it's about something I had created as a way to propose. It was a coin, meant to be heads up with the proposal engraved on it. You know how some people believe if you find a penny heads up it's a sign of good luck. That's the reason for the ending. I stopped writing for a few years, so I'm a bit rusty on really explaining myself well through my poetry still but I like to leave a bit up to imagination either way.
