Read Love Poems

The Flip Side

by Kitty Cat Lady

Love is territorial
And jealousy signals the threat
The louder your heart cries "Danger!"
The bigger the emotional debt

Fear will expose the ugly truth
You want to have and to hold
If your heart didn't already tell you
This is how your mind will be told

An unreasonable feeling will surface
It's been lurking deep in your pit
Twisting you with paranoia
Spewing words you didn't permit

The very thing you long to keep
You risk driving far away
Roll the dice and place your bets
This is love ... do you want to play?
