1- He Sees a Counsellor

You say your wife is seeing another man.
You don’t know when or where or even who.
It’s time to talk to her while you still can,
to build a bridge between the two of you.

To show her how distressed you are, and yet
so angry too.  I pick that up from here.
You have to raise these issues.  Don’t forget
you can’t expect she’ll buy into your fear.

Yes, fear.  Your courage, will it let you feel
the fear, explore your own emotional space?
This jealousy of yours – it isn’t real.
It’s something that you need – it fills a place.

She’ll find that place with you, if you don’t shout.
Say “Desdemona – we can work it out”.
