See This Ring?
It doesn’t matter what It cost —
Eye bought It for My Birthday
Years and Years ago
to signify my “attachment”
to The Little Man
Eye say Eye have been in love with
for nearly three decades.
See This Diamond?
It houses a pie-shaped Inclusion
to signify Its Uniqueness
and Eye wear it upon my left ring finger
Now and Then
to signify my endless heart’s time.
