a marriage by ring only

There will be no marriage.

I cannot accept the ring
You handcrafted so cunningly.

The pure romance of the gesture
Has been consumed by the
Chesspiece moves
That brought us here.

Purposeful distance and peacocking.
This prize you only want
Because you know you’ve lost,
And I hate being seen as a prize.

Lacking all that matters–
A marriage by ring only
Was never my style.
