Mischief: Wedding Band Astray


Eternity etched on the finger

The finger that leads to the heart

Yet the placeholder is missing

However it obviously left a mark

 

That vein is missing its jacket

The blood that runs to the heart now is so cold

For when you take off that wedding ring

The story of mischief is the one to be told

 

“They say that the circle of the wedding band is also a symbol of eternity. The circle has no beginning or end and is, therefore, a symbol of infinity. Traditionally, the wedding ring is worn on the fourth finger of the left hand. This is because the vein in this finger was believed to lead directly to the wearer’s heart….Is your heart still warm?” –Monica Renata
