Jade Heart - Poem by Corey Threet

My whole life I always knew my stand and position
I myself was never jealous at heart
But I found myself envying him when you’re together
How I long for a kiss from your sweet lips
And what I’d kill for the slightest touch from you
You’re brief recognition for me is all I ask
I know you love him but I love you too so where do I stand
Never have I been so confused, never in my life
I could solve every calculus equation
Before I could find the reason I am not yours
To spend time with you would bring joy to nature
And satisfaction to the order of life
But what is my greatest argument…I can do better than him
How could I, you smile every time you’re together
And to leave him for me on the hope I’ll love you better
Would only deem you greedy
It seems my quest for your heart has become frivolous
But knowing that I still can’t stand the thought of not trying
My heart has become extremely wistful for you
But all of my attempts of retrieving you
Become more and more feckless
I hope my behavior has not become to you onerous
But it seems that to have you my strategy
Would have to be a derivative of his
I have always played fair and by the rules
But what am I to do when you have another lover too
Out of my arms he stole you from me and it pains to see
How truly jaded my heart can be
