Captured Pearl

I tried to unlove you this summer.

I know, I know

that’s just the sort of thing I do

that really pisses you off.

I just had to know

but no worries

I was wildly unsuccessful

and when you bought me that necklace,

the captured pearl,

I understood.

I know exactly what it means

when I put it on

and I wear it every day.
