The Ring

It must have been heavier than I thought.

Stepped on the scale this morning
and noticed I’d reached my goal.

Could it have been so weighty as
to make all the difference?

My heart’s still heavy; my muscles ache.
Should my shoulders feel lighter?

My legs are antsy and restless but
my feet aren’t moving any faster.

There’s a lightness in my hand, though.
Just a trace of an outline of all that has been.

No sound as I tap it on the table,
nothing there to twist round.

Just the thoughts in my head
That won’t let me rest.
