About the Poem
I have no tolerance or understanding of jealously, but am witnessing the destruction of a man by its impact on his life.
This is a labour of love for it has taken 20 years to put the right words together. I have yet to find a poem that describes the negative impact that Jealously has. This poem is to help people understand why Jealously is bad.
The Impact Of Jealously
|by Heidy Schmidt|
|How you have denied my happiness
with envy, mistrust and possessiveness.
Forcing apologies for good times,
while drumming the bad.
Bombarding my emotions with confusion
by twisting the truth and reinforcing guilt.
You stripped my self- worth by exposing
the naked image of discontent.
Distorting the gift of life
by ripping, tearing at my conscience,
so frustrating for those around me.
Rejected, are the warm soothing thoughts
by continuously questioning
trust, honest, loyalty,
the true essence of love.
Above all, you deprived my dignity
of father, husband and manhood
by battering self- respect.
Oh, how abusive.
An internal holocaust with no dictator to destroy,
for I am weak, too feeble to take control.
