The Rock and the Ring

The Rock and the Ring

A Poem by Mr. Moore

None wish to address the past,
Into how or why our live did not last,
So tread not the path I go,
It's solitude I seek, leave alone this stone.

Removed of love, I do tread dutifully, 
Why leave such a precious stone be?
Do so because I seek to escape pity's peak,
A stone is not if seen as weak.

See not weakness, but distress comes tonight,
A stone sinking, so feared is this plight.
Hindsight it seems,for the bottom's been reached,
Eroding away, and so halt this speech.

I do implore, stop and see what lies in store,
Time created this diamond which we adore.
Abhor that which created my being,
If I could only remove love's keen sting.

This I would never have, to remove the past,
Are we not both better for having honed to the last?
I know not. But this stone, if so a diamond,
Need rest in a ring, together an island.

I wished it to be, I wish it were so,
But this ring has been stretched, the past missed though.
Allow me to rest and the shine will be brighter,
The silver's luster, the burden'll be lighter.

We walk together tonight, down to the road's end,
Once there, whether together we leave, we can decide then.
What a terrible blessing, a second chance at fate, 
For love's resting place, a stone lies in wait.
