The Pearl Necklace

the gloves lay on the dresser the strand of pearls nearby her necklace went everywhere but today there it would lie a gift from her lover she always told it that way more truth it was her fiancé to wear on their wedding day a symbol that he adored her “Get my pearls,” she would say each pearl a year plus two lives entwined come what may the jewelry box filled with exquisite and divine swirls no piece meant more to her than a single strand of pearls fastened the clasp the last time her lover was waiting now interred today she will lie beside him forever wearing the pearls that he gave her
