he was on his morning run
when he decided that
he didn’t love her
and like many before him
he said his hasty goodbye
his ring sat passive aggressively
next to the sink
just above the drain
maybe it would just disappear
when he finally washed his hands
she left her picture
hanging on the wall
and sent her clothes to charity
naked in the moonlight
she ran until
her feet bled
but left the ring with the stone missing
on her finger
as it carried her passing fancy
of living a normal life
