A Very Strong Emotion

Which I try to keep secret.
Is it dangerous?
Is it over-reactive?
It is unexpected, unwanted and feared.
Its arrival makes me unsure.
So I unsuccessfully try to still the emotion
and wonder if that is wise.
I waiver and fear
as it begins to look
like anger and expresses itself unbidden
on my lips and in my gestures.
I realize I must speak of my painful jealousy.
I receive the
necessary, sincere reassurance
through the un-judging wisdom and loyalty
of my Love
who recognizes my need
and mends my confidence
with his healing presence.
