Seven years and nineteen days ago,
it was placed on my finger with ceremony,
in joy and sanctity,
with promise and hope and belief that
this marriage would be different from all the rest.
But it seems it wasn't.
He stopped wearing his years ago.
But I continued, even though we have lived apart for three months,
even though the papers are filed.
I was going to wear it until the day the courts declared it over.
Because our hearts had not declared that fact, for 100% certain.
But tonight he tells me that to heal, he needs to fully let go. For good.
So I take off the ring,
and wonder when my finger will forget.
Because I know for sure: my heart never will.
