in the early days your heart was zealous
but sparks have cooled, and now he gets jealous
these days you daren’t flash a friendly smile
or risk working late even once in a while

  1. Great little poem! Friend of mine had a boyfriend once who turned into a tyrant because he was so jealous. I’d forgotten about him but this reminded me – I’d better use him in a story some time…

  2. This really sums it up, Jane! How destructive this emotion can be – brilliantly put. How can relationships survive when there’s no trust? It’s always baffled me. Thanks so much – this is a great entry.
