Jealousy - Poem by Stephen Loomes

Jealousy, don’t tell me you don’t feel it.
Jealousy, I don’t like it
What I seem to be
I get hostile
When you turn from me
I feel shame
For what I always do
When I’m feeling far away
From you.
Jealousy, you got a letter
In the mail today
I saw you read it
Then I turned away
It makes me lonely
When my heart is proud
You know I told you
I don’t want a crowd.
Jealousy, I’ve got friends
Quite apart from you
I go to see them
And ask them to
Speak out and tell me
What should I do.
They say, they are lonely
And they need a start
I go back home
And then I fall apart.
