Jealous?? Yes I am.

Jealous?? Yes I am.
Not just because 'She' shares you with me
But various other facets of you that once belonged only to me

Jealous?? Yes, I am.
Coz she can see you all through the day
When you walk-in looking bright in the morning
Till you leave tired right at the end of the day

Jealous?? Yes, I am.
Coz she sees you flustered in humid May
Wet in the July rain
And warm within your jackets in cold December days

Jealous?? Yes, I am.
Coz she can come over for friendly chat
Or talk to you about her problems with this and that

Jealous?? Yes, I am.
Coz she sees you working animatedly on your screen
Observing sweat beads on your forehead while you seem lost in thoughts so deep

Jealous?? Yes, I am.
Coz she can see you when worry takes over
And lend her shoulder for you to lean over    

Jealous?? Yes, I am.
Coz she smells ‘your’ smell
The heady mixture that in my mind still dwells

Jealous?? Yes, I am.
Coz she can see the smile on your face
And hear the peals of your laughter as the joy in your heart emanates

Jealous?? Yes, I am.
Coz she can listen to your anecdotes every now and then
And shares your time again and again

Jealous?? Yes, I am.
For millions of things you wouldn’t have thought
For those umpteen silly reasons for which we have fought  

You think jealousy is the darker shade of me
But that’s what for me ‘belongingness’ means
Worry, when I stop being jealous
Coz that’s the day when nothing’s gonna matter anymore to me..

  3. I have read very few poems on hate, jealousy and such emotions. It is always about love or missing someone.
    Very well written. :) :)
