It grabs you silently by the heart
Gives you a sudden start.
Fending off yet another
Possible, maybe lover.
Sexting, email all are suspect
Loss of all your own self-respect.
Chase them down give them misery
Such is your sad history.
Look in the mirror long and hard
Shatter your love shard by shard.
Can’t admit it is he that he cheated
and made your love defeated.
The list goes on and on it seems
Shatters all your dreams.
The spikey tail of jealousy and its’ sting
You cannot cope, you cannot bring
Yourself to understand your love
Is not a sweet and gentle dove
But a poorly disguised rat
and it isn’t the others that
It was the viper in your breast
That destroyed your little nest.
