Trifextra: Afternoon Delight


“Tether our hearts forever.”

His ring said.

“Forever and more.”

Said hers.

“Your skin is velvet. Your hair, a crown of spun gold.”

Sighing.

“Come, husband.”

Coaxing.

“Where, wife?”

“The loft.”

“Mmmmm hmmmm.”

  12. Guess that hair and skin line worked. "The Loft"... says a lot in two words. Nice.

    It is interesting what is engraved in rings. I used to be a jeweler.

    1. I guess "The Loft" is quite the destination! Thanks.

      I agree. There is probably something engraved in most. I find it very interesting.
