Unknown base of jealousy

Where this anger spites from,
seems like a bitter place-
in the bottom of my heart.
Why it stings so sharply
I can not say,
I wish it didn't.
I trust him..
Is it that I don't trust her?
I have no reason to not trust her.
But then why..
why does this twinge bother me?
..How do I stop this feeling
with no base,
no air to blow it up?
There aren't even pictures
of why i should consider it
in my head.
No thoughts
about anything really happening;
so why does hot tears
threaten my eyes?
I am never the type
to fall to something
as low and undignifying
as jealousy-
one of human kind's
greatest enemies.
I have never let it control me.
But I can't help to wonder..
why is it hitting me now,
so strongly?
