Am I Jealous

Rating: 4.2
I have feelings for you its true
Though we both agree
They will never be love

We travel our separate paths
Meeting when we feel a need
So why does your seeking of others
Create this confusion in me
Am I jealous

This relationship has no ground rules
That can be applied in our situation
We dont have a need for trust
Who you see when its not me
Should not bother me
But it does
Am I jealous

Maybe its not jealousy
But more the feeling of impending loss
For soon you will find someone
And then you wont need me again
Someone new will hold you tight
And our paths will no longer cross.

This is a straighforward, uncomplicated and honest piece of writing which asks the timeless question about the pain of relationships, no matter how casual. I guess it's about ego and fear of abandonment when you look deep enough. Or perhaps, you actually feel more than you allow yourself to admit... An accessible well written piece. love, Allie xxxxxxxxx

You said it! I like the feel this poem has to it; it fits your words well, and your word choice fits your subject well.

I love this poem, it's so forthright, I understand your feeling and have experienced it just once whilst in that situation. I was racked with the 'green thing' in a way I never knew possible. I think it's because of the lack of rules that you feel it is not justifiable to feel that way. However, because of the connection you deserve a level of sensitivity and I think this is where it is more difficult to draw the rules up. Am I waffling? I hope not! ! A good poem though Alison. HG: -) xx

The first line gives it all away. When the feelings are threatened by the possibility of loss, jealousy or pain comes swooping down to stick its little knife in your heart. It's a tightrope situation and you're being pushed and pulled from side to side! ! But you've expressed that ambivalent situation very effectively in this. Good poetry Alison! ! xx jim
