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.

I'm a really jealous person I just realized. I hate it, it's awful. I'm jealous at those who are so loved, because I can't get that love. I just want to scream. >.<

Exactly how I feel right now. I am sick and tired of nearly everyone on deviantart being so much better at art than I and sometimes ill come across people saying that their total newbies at art like me when their art is still better than mine. I could go on ranting and raging for ages about how my drawings look like total ass cancer but I wont.

Brilliant poem, very well writen and discribed my feelings exactly. One of the worst feelings imaginable in my opinion.
GinPhin509 Featured By Owner Aug 21, 2012
Amazingly written. Pictures the exact emotions. Bravo.
SalutDolce Featured By Owner Jun 6, 2012
Argh I wish there was away to cope with this feeling. It's the worst feeling ever. I wish I could just stop.

But I feel a little better I'm not the only one who ever feels this...but at the same time it pains me to see others feel like this. I wish no one had to ever feel this...jealousy.

Sometimes I feel like this too…I try not to be jealous, but the feeling never goes away...

going through a jealously phase of my best friend... so not fun, we just moved to a co-ed school and a guy who's in my class came up to me just to say she's really pretty and is she taken... not so fun

nocoolnamesavailible Featured By Owner May 20, 2011  Hobbyist Writer
I quite like your poem...I find our writing style to be very similar. Perhaps it's just the rhyming pattern though.

Would it be narcissistic of me to say Well done? [link]
