Jealousy Is Insecurity

Jealousy Is Insecurity

A Poem by Morgan|Intelligent|witty|gemini

Heavy, my chest feels
but not my heart
It's light as lettuce
so light in fact
that it races through these minutes 
like the wind makes it beat
I feel weighed down and weightless
this anxiety is engulfing
but its based in insecurity 
so in reality
I've got more control than I feel I do
you were with them late and
I am fully aware that my mind
is regularly the dramatic type that
likes to believe you two are
making up and hugging it out
which would be great actually
if my brain didn't tell me you were also
falling in love
It's so silly to say aloud
and if I would trust in your love and your word
and believe in my own worth
then my screenplay writing mind
wouldn't feel so suffocating 
and my chest and my heart
could fall back into automatic existence 
and maybe I could sleep.
