VII.

I am not jealous
of these girls you pursue
believing I am blind
to your attention
on them and their bodies
I am hurt that you
think them more worthy
than I of your sweet words
and loving complements
I am overcome seeing
how easily kisses are shared
and ‘I love yous’
when you ignore
every gentle touch of mine.
And I know it’s not the lie
it is how completely
you give your love away
when it was I
who hold you when you cry.
