Envy

The poison flows through my veins

My blood boils as I watch her

As I listen

As I choke

On my bitterness

Venom of the deceitful

A dose so small

So powerful

Like a serpent it caught me

With fangs of golden bait

Like sugar on arsenic

I let it into my soul

I let it in

I let it consume my heart

I let it crack my soul in its coils

I let it

The chalice of Eris

From which it poured

Lined with lies and smiles to her

Rimmed with the sweet venom of rage

A broken heart

A broken truth

Devoured by my poison

By my greed

My terrible

Envy
