The Jealous Lover


Glancing through the side of her eyes.
She eyed her lover whispering to another, he never realise.
The flirty touches and the naughty laughter.
The soft looks with some shyful banter.
The playful exchange created some wonder.
What they not knew, is the seething anger.

Glancing through the side of her eyes.
The venom of jealousy through her veins flies.
Dark heavy venom consumes from within.
This very act to her it chagrined.
Like the white wool soaked in black ink
It permeates throughout, her heart really sinks.

Glancing through the side of her eyes.
In her heart she silently cries.
If she could, she would claw the girl.
And keep her lover to herself like a pearl.
Jealous nature of the angry lover.
As venomous as the deadly adder.

    Jealous eyes are everywhere and see nit only what is in their vision, but also what is imagined in their heart. Best to beware the jealous glance. An interesting look inside.... (Report) Reply

poet Emily Jane Brontë

I am the only being whose doom
No tongue would ask no eye would mourn
I never caused a thought of gloom
A smile of joy since I was born

In secret pleasure - secret tears
