by Marilyn S. Ferrell

I am indeed jealous
because I demand 100% of you,
I’ll claim my space in the recess
of your precious time too few,
refusing to be obscure in your shadow,
but a force deep in your marrow.

Others may go 'round and 'round
in endless circles
commitments unbound,
foolishly erecting pretenses and hurdles,
but I am jealous-
I want 100%, and nothing less.
