All Things Change

the gray-haired woman
was transfixed
as she stood
beside her old dresser.
she stared
at the collection
of scars
embedded in the
wooden surface
and wondered
if she looked the same
inside.
after she spent
what felt like a lifetime
dwelling on memories,
she took
the wedding ring
off her finger,
placed it softly
in the bottom dresser drawer,
shut it tight
and never
looked back
once.
