Jealous Gratitude

I am jealous
of everything that has ever touched you,
the breaths of hot sunshine that have soothed your cheeks with hope,
the moonlight that has painted your lips with lilly silver,
the darkness that has calmed you into soft slumber,
the rain that has pelted your flesh with sky splash,
the breeze that has lifted your hair with seductive intent,

Jealous of every temptation that has made your soul sweat,
every secret that has sworn obedience to your obsessions,
every kiss that has taken a taste of your sweet heat
every man that has collapsed into your romance,
every mouth that has spoken your name with awe
every second that has circled your psyche,
every particle that has pranced through your bloodstream, 
every emotion that enlivens your ego,
every knot of knowledge that supports your smarts,
every star that has caught your girlish wishes,
every tear that slides faithfully from the pink rims of your eyelids,
every cut that has silenced your pride,

Jealous of every thing
that has left you, fed you, led you, entered you,
yet, I am grateful for all these odd and splendid things
that have known your beauty and pain,
for they have made my need for you real
and your love for me possible,
this jealousy is my love hypocrisy -

J.A.B.

    Fascinating honesty uprooted from obsession and passion, and an instant favorite. The breeze with its 'seductive intent' The image of that tear sliding down.very treasurable lines of a fantastic love marvel. It is a conflicted emotion I think. It causes us to be so very saturated in want and need. Yet it demands our gratitude too. Your heart wants to imagine feel taste and breathe what you love the most. . I can definitely relate to this one and to the heart behind your work. Always, Laura

    Skysplash and Lilly silver, that's the language of the angels, cool guy! You romance a negative word like jealous and give it sweet innocence and wings of hope. Envy hasn't been written with a purer intent than this lovely write.I loved 'Every second that's circled your psyche, particle that's pranced thru your stream,knot of knowledge....' Who wouldn't collapse into beauty like this?? I admire your brains, you evoke love all thru this splendid masterpiece.
