That Jerk Mr. J

I waited up for him till 4 am then gave up. I succumbed to sleep while feeling I had left him to the wolves. In my mind I was hearing him laughing and chattering while I huddled alone in the dark. Of course he came home, and of course everything was all right, and yet the weekend left me feeling like a new person. I feel weird. The wine tasting plus the night left alone with my imagination totaled my brain in a crash of jealousy.

I keep thinking of the girl I had the misfortune of watching all of Saturday, the one who had him momentarily before he had me; had his virginity in fact, and I see his hands that I love moving over her skin, I hear his passionate breathing while he moves over her body, kissing her mouth, being inside of her.

And suddenly I feel like I don't know the guy. Of course every one has a past. Mine is much more populated and involved than his certainly has been and there's no reason I should be letting it affect our present. Except there she was: a physical, tangible, real person in front of me and no longer something I could pretend was imaginary or safely in forgettable history.

I have loved, but I've always managed to keep a rational distance from that jerk Jealously. And now, somehow, I've let him get so close to me that he could slip his hands around my neck and cut of the oxygen to my brain. I no longer feel love, I just feel possessive and skittish. How do I get out of this and back into the air?


  1. you have to remember he is with YOU for a reason...if he wanted her he'd be with her...i try to tell myself that if i ever have jealous thoughts.. he obviously loves and cares for you, so instead of letting in the negative think of something better!

  2. Little Tree Vintage makes a really good point. he's with you for a reason. If it was meant to be, there's nothing you can do to make him leave. If it wasn't meant to be, there's nothing you can do to make him stay. Enjoy the moment, live your life, and maybe even try being friends with the offending ex : ) *hugs*

  3. I love, love, LOVE your blog. Your writing is beautiful. I wish I could do something so emotionally purging as such. I'm certainly a follower now. Just so lovely.


  4. Try not to be too jealous, it sounds like you have a lot more of his love than she ever did.

    I agree with Kola, enjoy the moments you have together, live your life to the fullest... Nothing lasts forever, but you can make the most of it while it does.
