A little piece of metal
Jagged and scarred
A little light of heart
You slip it on my finger
A promise you laugh
It doesn’t shine or twinkle
But it fits nice and snug
Like a crown it rules
Three fingers from my thumb.

That ring on your finger,
Yes the one that’s been missing
I think of it and wonder
What the hell am I doing?
But your brown eyes glow like embers
Attracting me to the flames
Lured by your warmth in this December
I am coated in shame.
And I know I am better than this
But I don’t want to be
Because when we’re hip to hip
Desire controls me.

Oh pearl, held up high
You, my dear, could reach the sky.
Oh pearl, glistening in the light
You are a blinding, magnificent sight.
Oh pearl, the object of two girls on my ring
There you are between them, reaching.
Oh pearl, can’t you see?
The mermaids who hold you belong to me.
Oh pearl, do you realize now?
You are the commitment
Which comes from an engagement.
