Jealousy

My heart rips out of my chest
With your accusatory tone
I know this is going to be a long night
And you continue to scorn
Why is it that anytime we're apart
That you seem to think cheating
Is what makes the world go round
You never address the issue
Your only focus is on my words of anger
How could you be blind
To the love I have for you
I show it all the time, right?
But you jump right back into
The things I call you
Do you think I wanted this?
Before you came into the picture
I was dreaming up all the things my prince would be,
Jealous was not one of them
