How could she strike this chord?
The dissonant chord of jealousy?
Throwing off my natural harmony.
Negating many years of emotional tuning.
But she is only a friend
As, like-wise, am I
So what then invoked this jealous threat?
Most certainly not the chance of something more.
I want to say it's the intensity,
Knowing that your bond is stronger than ours.
At least before I was privy to sensitive information,
But now so is she…
But it can't be that, the timing is off
The mere mention of her agitated me.
Like she was invading my territory
But what type of friend am I to claim you as territory?
I guess my head says I can be content as friends
Even though my heart disagrees.
I ignore it, thinking I'm doing what's best,
But her name breaks the block
Overpowering my mind and body
And I sing the clichéd song of bitter jealousy.
