Rose Gold

It's hard to say
whether the wedding band
on her finger wore down,
or the flesh
softened and faded
from beneath it,

but the circlet has thinned
to a wisp of rose gold
that swings and slides,
threatens at any moment
to slip away.

I am partial to rose gold, it is something delicate and beautiful.

Even the name 'Rose Gold' is lovely in my opinion.



Hey kid, nice to see you around


As always, nice write.
