Sapphire

The Living Poetry prompt

He slips the blue sapphire
onto her finger
silently
prays for her spirit
to turn towards him

She accepts his ring of proposal
silently
prays for his envy and jealousy
banished from their life forward

Will the blue sapphire
be the magic wand
grant them fidelity
in marriage
or
be the smallest handcuff
imprison her heart
