Not with me; think of you too much. 

A tiny ring; it you so condemns.

Even in death your pretentious, 

Hurting me; dying this way such. 

——–

Is it a poisonous ring to touch? 

A gem given not generous.

Without thought of reverence, 

To your memory, not a crutch. 

——–

Only a ring, such evil brings, 

Only a ring; inside me stings. 

A ring he made a promise to —

Love me for all time; it sings.

——-

Yet into my brain it’s screwed,

Saw you kissing her by the yew.

At your grave; asking ring keep too.

In death hold; you I never knew.

  1. This line is sort of Gothic, definitely strong: “Yet into my brain it’s screwed, . . .” Your phrasing so often evokes power. An admirable accomplishment, Mandi. Plus there is a whole novel narratively set (introduced?) here.
