Jealous

Vomit

it happens

when I see

them

together

.

and when

I don’t see them

together

.

I imagine them

together

.

they say

that new love

is sweeter

than the old

.

that old love

can be bitter

.

the dish I’m left

is far too sour

to savour

.

but I’ll eat

every morsel

of this

nauseating

feast

.

and

tomorrow

look for more

.

    Yes they are ramblings of the mind and your poem shows clearly how it is to live a lie, until one awakes up...strange we all can live a lie ....

    1. Jealousy is an addiction of sorts - it is a wound you will not let heal.

    Jealousy is an evil addiction of sorts... its hard to get over and hard to control as it takes your mind and you act without thinking... Great piece!! Peace

    1. Thank you Debra - jealousy is hard to live with, but the most natural vice.
