Disclaimer: I do not own the Phantom of the Opera.

This is a concrete poem I wrote for a poetry notebook in Accelerated English (written in the shape of a ring in the notebook), the theme of which was The Phantom of the Opera. All poems were from Erik's point of view. Please enjoy. Reviews are appreciated.

"A Ring"

A ring;

such a hateful, spiteful reminder

of love lost

given the loser

by the victor's

beautiful, living trophy.

Never did I wish

for such a cold, unfeeling "gift"

to sneer at me

for the rest

of my pitiful existence.
