A myriad of human emotions
from the sordid to ecstacy
but none as treacherous
as the depravity of jealousy

Anomaly of expectation,
rise of another
Accolades,words,a look, mere gestures
enough to spark the green fire
To rage in our heart's fissures

You may claim to have bested the haunt
Of this malignant chain and ball
Disagree, deny it all you want...
It lurks in the core of us all.
