The Green-Eyed Envy

Jealousy consumes me
As I watch you walk away
So effortlessly, without a care
Leaving me behind, in despair I envy your strength
To distance yourself with ease
To let go, and move on
While I’m left with heartache that won’t cease You soar like a bird in flight
Leaving sorrow and pain out of sight
Leaving me with my jealousy
And the agony of your memory How I wish I could be like you
Free from the pain and the blue
But instead, I am stuck here
Trying to let go, but consumed by fear So here I am, lost in emotion
As you leave with a shattered notion
Wishing I could fly away
Like you do, every single day.
