Jealous

13th in the series of “tell me your song, I’ll write you a poem”

Jealous



I’m jealous of your white fitted shirt
and how it hugs your body so tight
so tight it gives u warmth and comfort
and how it hears your heartbeat
so gentle, so sweet
how it graciously covers your
broad shoulders, I so want to boldly
hold and lean my head on
anytime, anywhere
I’m jealous, I’m just jealous
It should’ve been me
“cos I want you all to myself”

I’m jealous of your car seat belt
and how it protects you in the street
how it hears you sing along with our spotify
playlist songs, how it feels your right hand’s caress out in the highway,
down the road
how you slowly, gently buckle up
before each long drive
and how, oh dear just how
it bears witness to your lonesome
sunset drive
I’m jealous, I’m just jealous
It should’ve been me
“cos I want you all to myself”

I’m jealous of your tight
faded jeans and how it holds you up
up to your very core
how it admires your body strength
as you walk tall and steady
every step of your way every day
and how it gives you the command
of a perfectly strong, yet gentleman
I’m jealous, I’m just jealous
It should’ve been me
“cos I want you all to myself”


so baby next time
no white fitted shirt
no car seat belt
no tight faded jeans
just me, you and
the shadow of our love
