The green-eyed monster

At rest,

Like a slumbering volcano

Slowly awakening

Uncoiling, roiling

Getting ready

To strike!

Slowly slithering

Into the light

Malice and avarice,

Insidiously creeping

Palpable

Smouldering,

Simmering,

Sizzling

Green

With envy and jealousy

Stealthily drawing closer

"Oh! What a delight

Today is the day

I've decided

To make you

Pay

I will have it my

Way

You can no longer

Keep me at

Bay"

Boiling

Roiling

Striking

Hitting the mark

Venom, mixing with blood

Flooding - coursing - flowing swiftly

Through veins

Gagging

Sagging

Feeling like lead

"Guess what"?

You're dead!
