by definition
by a simple analysis of the letter pattern
is a lousy business

Sometimes, it doesn’t create insecurity
but is borne out of a personal history

Those other times with different players
the game was rigged
and the trust offered, repaid
with the commerce of betrayal

Jealousy (shortened to j-lousy)
sometimes is more a failing of faith
a failure to believe
that the love you hold in your hands
is true
is honest
the game fair
the players not like the others

Love is hard enough
without adding imagined dangers
when real danger is at the door
you will recognize it

Now relax
breathe easy
this is not another con

is something to savor
something to trust
the love true, the game fair
