Envy (5 Landays)   Leave a comment

I’m filled with anger, hate, jealousy
Boiling up from the deepest places inside of me.

Foolishly, I will try to hide it.
In vain, I will try to take that thought and deride it

I’ll try, but it will take me under
And drown me in a roar of cacophonous thunder.

In its wake, it leaves me a shell
Trapped here to suffer, here in my own personal hell.

Filled up with greed, and pride, and envy
All because others have the joy I wanted for me.
