A sparkling ring embellished her well manicured fingers
A perfect connotation to symbolise love and devotion
She was the cynosure of many a envious eyes 
As they flagrantly displayed their unfeigned emotions

A perfect sign of commitment and fidelity in their marriage
An impassioned fire of desire within them incessantly burned
An enduring symbol of promises made between the two
And exchange of marital vows were firmly affirmed

She was the arm candy of her affluent partner
And to his business rivals he insolently flaunted her
She was intimidated at times by his flamboyant nature
But the fear of losing her prominence always daunted her

As she waited every night at the edge of an abyss 
He was in perpetuity ready to explore a new encounter
His first glance probed every woman’s sensuality lustfully
Once he was obliged, towards her he would languidly saunter

Another night, another carousal as they were ready to host
He staggered into the room with a complete stranger
Neither she reacted nor she retaliated
Though she knew her marriage was in grave danger

The images of his infidelity flashed before her teary eyes
But she didn’t allow disturbing thoughts to anymore linger
Her luscious lips curved in a deliberate smile
Once again she slipped on the sparkling ring on her finger
