Jealousy streaks through my heart,
Wrenching it deep and sharp.
Pierces stronger than a dart,
The soul convulses into a warp.
The eyes are green,
Wondering what could have been.
Occupied with thoughts, dirty and obscene,
Shamelessly mean, hopelessly unclean.
Sights of happiness evoke sadness,
Moments of love elicit disappointment.
The antithesis is profoud,
The mind is a hound.
Morals are absent,
Not even an iota of ethics.
Such behavior is frequent,
Common are these antics.
Is there any cure,
Would anything rectify this behaviour erratic?
The mind is looking for a saviour,
It just wishes to be more civic.
Comparison is the cause,
The mind makes it a needless hoopla.
Snatch your life out of those killer jaws,
The flowers would bloom...voila.
Comparisons are inevitable,
Yet absolutely avoidable,
The color white turns black into gray,
Everyone wins, one day.
To bury jealousy in a deep grave,
I wish God makes my mind strong.
I pray it will pave,
