The Ring

The Ring

A Poem by The ArK

The Ring, a relic of our love...

Last night she gave me the ring-
that bore our names,
A reminiscent of the love we once shared,
A shiny ring.

O' dear, why give me back?
Keep it in the deepest pocket of your bag,
or among the last pages of your scrapbook.
But why give me back?

I can't hold it's weight,
cause there's a part of my soul inside-
that I rip apart for you.
A part still craving for your love.

I will dig so deep for this relic,
no nomads can ever find.
I will burn it till it glows,
till the heat of our love melt it.

I will bury it among the woods,
cause love can only be buried among love.
I will give it to nature,
for there's not a better lover than her.

O' dear, you know I can't keep it,
Time must rust it out.
Like our love that once shined,
but left a cold piece of charcoal.

Love is such a purest form of feeling, the artists paint with colours, while the writers with words. Yet nobody could ever describe it completely as it differs for every other individual out there.

Thank you my friend.
This is a powerful piece of emotion, my friend. I really connected to the emotions behind it. You portrayed what's in your head so very well. Brilliant piece.

Thank You!
Returned rings seem to be the ultimate put down to me. I also think, the person it was gifted to should have kept it as a sign of what was once good in the relationship. Breakups are painful, giving rings back just comes across as trying to erase everything. You can't do that. I enjoyed your poem Ark.

I believe complex thoughts can be conveyed through simple words. I write simple, but trying to mean a lot. And I'm 21. more..
