My finger is naked for the first time in 17 and a half years. I thought I'd never see that band of pale flesh, but there it is. I did not greet it with joy at finally revealing a long lost part but with sorrow at a revealing a newly lost part.

My finger carries the indentation of 17 and a half years of love and security and hope. It's a new ring I wear, but I don't know what it represents now.

My gold band will be reunited with his in my jewlery box. They no longer stand as a symbol of our love, but a symbol of our failure. Every day for all those years I took a moment to look at that ring. To really see that ring. And now only a ring shaped scar remains.

Your ring is off my finger yet my heart remains yours. I fear my heart will soon become a scar as well.

Goodbye my love. Goodbye.
