no matter how much we try
hiding the feeling of resentment
suspicious of being dethroned
fearful to be left behind

those who love are often jealous
watchful in the protection
possessive of a heart
we love


 our emotions show
both our actions and reactions
efforts that we exert
the truthfulness of Love
intolerant of unfaithfulness
as we walk the path that we trod

we come to know the Lord
is a jealous God
