Sometimes my fingers feel too light and part of me panics. 

Shouldn't there be a ring there? 

So I look down and clutch my hand, scanning the ground briefly. A quick thought passes, zings through me like lightning, and I'm wondering if it fell off or if I may have misplaced it.

Actually looking at that finger, bare as it's been for these past 2+ years, I remember, 
"That's right, I don't have that anymore."
