Throwback Thursday

The Long Forgotten Drawer
I took the ring
out of some
long forgotten drawer
and slipped it on
the loneliest finger.

It was heavy,
sopped with
memories that
weighed my
hand down.

I took the ring
out of some
long forgotten drawer
and slipped it on
the hand I
devoted to you.

This ring.
My will.
Will always
be yours.

With this ring
I honor you.

Then
I slip it
off my finger
and put it back
in the long
forgotten drawer.
