Jealousy is a green-eyed monster that constantly pokes you in the back
And begs you to turn around.
So you try to sneak a glance
But you see something you regret.
Jealousy is a miner that digs deep into your soul
And pushes you into the hole it has created.
So you try to climb out
But you slip and fall.
Jealousy is a wild animal that knocks you to the ground
And leaves you there to struggle.
So you try to get back on your feet
But you realize that they are broken.
Jealousy is a weapon of mass destruction that threatens your well-being
And intimidates you.
So you try to dismantle it
But you watch it explode in your face.
Jealousy is an emotion that takes you by the neck
And strangles you.
So you try to free yourself
But you are unable to escape from the chokehold.
