Literary Yard

Search for meaning


By: Sam Rapth


It was in those moments
when your palm quickly drifted
from under his,
that I entered the room…

In an unpredictable fraction of a second
I actually had seen it
But pretended not to notice…

I did not see
the ring that I wore
in one of your beautiful petal-like
fingers on the day of our marriage…

I turned my eyes blind on that too
as I knew of the various fake reasons
that you might come up with…

I pretended as if I have forgotten
the day you introduced him to me
as your friend…

I imagined what it would had been
If I were your friend and
he was your husband…

Everything was in place except
for a statement of separation
from the family court…
