That Dragon Which Slays Love

I remember…
…wishing you would not get so jealous.  There was never a reason except those you imagined.  You were the one I loved then and still do today even though you threw me away.  
 
From “On Life and Sex” by Havelock Ellis, 1937
Jealousy,
That dragon
Which slays love
Under the pretense
Of keeping it alive.
