The Collar

Form: Free Verse

Circle of silver
what do you mean
now you lie discarded
and unworn
unwanted by the pale skin of her neck
still cool to my touch
that band of silver
a symbol of all that I am
all the love I can give
the essence of my being
all of me
that I was giving to her
because she was mine
for it was she who empowered me
it was she who gave me strength
it was she who embraced the dark side of me
it was she who made me whole
I feel its emptiness inside
as my heart echoes the void
