Jealousy is a monster,

Lurking inside our minds.

It lashes out randomly,

Destroying our lives.

It breaks our hearts,

And laughs at our pain.

It's a lustful desire,

A demon on rampage.

It lures us into its evil pit.

Cheering at our demise.

It smiles manically,

As it watches us die.

It kills us slowly,

Secretly in the dark.

I cringe as it consumes,

My every thought.

Oh what can I do,

Can it be fought?

Jealousy is something,

That can't be stopped.

Jealousy is a monster.
