Envy 10mwc (free verse)

Cover Image

it bothers me

when i see her silhouette

moving across the street

accompanied with warmth

and chivalry

it bothers me when coins

trickle their way into the pockets

of people I never see

it bothers me

when someone proclaims happiness

in spite of society's most obvious misery

i'm tired of observing,

of resenting,

of expecting restitution


it bothers me

when all i do

is portray opposition

to inner envy
