Jealousy's Realm

XXXI Days of Poetry - Day the Seventeenth

Jealousy's Realm

True Love can be hurt, but 
dwells not in Jealousy's realm. 
Jealousy foments from Insecurity, 
Selfishness, or matters darker yet.

True Love wants only Happiness 
for its Beloved, not to overwhelm.
Jealousy offers happiness with one hand, 
while the other swings a net.
