378 (who?)
Jealousy kills you,
With every ache.
You keep your mouth shut,
Your smile is fake.

You say it's okay,
When really it's not.
It makes you sick,
But it's these thoughts you fought.

You feel the heat in your shoulders,
your hands start to shake,
You keep to yourself,
as you silently wait.

You deal with the pain,
with each word you write,
Thinking nice thoughts,
To help your mind fight.

Your stomach is turns,
You feel you should die,
But you breathe a breath in,
and you try not to cry.

It's really not bad,
this lie that you made,
To help you fight through,
As the feeling will fade.
I wrote this to help me deal with a little jealousy issue I was having with this girl...who is a friend of my friend....

Incredibly true, It's a struggle for me. I love this guy so much, and I'm furiously jealous when there's other girls around him.

This is exactly how I feel... I have a crush on this girl, but she's with someone else... That lucky son of a bitch.

Thanks so much.

Recently I went through a messy breakup and he already has someone new and I am sick with jealousy...

So I need this. Badly.

beautiful. It describes every thought and thing that happens when I get jealous. Which is often. Why? I don't want to be, I want to be friends with this person. But why? Why must I feel this way? I can't control it and I'll just have to bare it until the one being stolen realizes.
