 Jealousy

 

“I want what THAT person’s got”

Whatever YOU have; good enough it’s not

The grass seems so much greener on the other side of the fence

I guess wanting someone else’s, is just common sense

Jealousy also makes you act crazy

Your mind starts thinking the worst, maybe

it’s something awful; a betrayal that cuts deep

Jealousy blinds your eyes; it’s impossible to see

I know, because I was once that guy

Felt the adrenaline rush, when you don’t know why

I thought some really out there, crazy thoughts

I built things up, until they were not

reality; I drove myself nuts

And it’s so damaging; counter-productive, but,

you’re out of your mind; not knowing what’s going on

A white-hot emotion; insanity, I’m so far gone

Jealousy, a self-destructive thing

What with the craziness it brings!
