I am jealous of the ocean that treats her like sun,
sinks her within like a dazzle beyond refraction.
I am jealous of the moon that keeps her in sight,
and stars that follow her in her dreams all night…
I am jealous of the clouds that hover on her head,
as they become a drizzle to kiss her forehead…
I am jealous of the drizzle that she soaks herself in,
and those droplets that later glide on her skin…
I am jealous of wet air that touches her hair, and
of those lights that make her eyes go twinkling.
I am jealous of those wet roads that she walks on,
and everything that feels her and stands gasping.
I am jealous of those places that have her embodied,
and those moments that carry her as charm unique.
I am jealous of sound of wind blowing, drops falling
they whisper love in her ear to send her dreaming.
I am jealous of all those words that fall from her lips,
as I’m not there to catch them before they leave sigh..
I am jealous of all those songs that set her on fire,
and all those little secrets that turns her fragile.
I am jealous of those blank sheets that she writes on,
opening up like a bottle, pouring herself like wine…
I am jealous of all the metaphors that she likes,
since they make their way so easily into her lines…
I am jealous of mirrors that tend to see her often,
wearing that smile, grace, charm and aura divine…
I am jealous of that mascara spread on her eyes,
that knows before me what her silence confines…
Yes, I am jealous…
I am jealous of even the future imagining myself in it,
that it loves her more intensely than I in a present time.
I am not actually jealous of anything that is in contact with her,
But resentful of self that I can’t express my gravity of love to her.
I have a jealousy with such strange jealousy in love,
like a tree it grows yet deepens in roots my love for her.
