This Beast is Real

At times I feel
A stabbing pain
Within the corners
Of my brain

It starts out slow
But soon it spreads
The beast of envy
Has my head

I have been struggling with this a lot lately. Struggling to the point of sleepless nights. I find jealousy to be the equivalent of poison without the side effects of death. It rears it’s ugly head, bringing out the beast in you, and then spreads throughout your entire being until you are miserable with it. The funny thing is, it whispers lies of false comparisons and revenge, and although you try to shoot punishing vibes towards the person you are jealous of the only one that ends up really suffering is you.

Jealousy ruins relationships.

Jealousy ruins you.

I can promise you now, it is not worth it.

Let it go.
