I see it hanging from our bed
Mine is there too

I’ve decided I won’t wear it
Unless yours isn’t there

May be petty
Tit for Tat

But, if you don’t see the importance
Of symbolizing our union in public

Neither will I
Why should I?

Prompting these pieces
Of my puzzle was fun –
In year one

It’s year 10
And it is a symbol

Whether superficial
Just for show
Just a chore
Not indicative of the true depth of your love

It means something to me –
A little girl inside who cannot endure rejection in any form by the one she loves most.

You should know better
But I’m too tired to keep pleading my case

And maybe I’m not patient enough to wait for your awakening
