Envy


Envy
in the box
it curves us

Pandora
disseminates envy

Envy
in our food
it eats us

Envy
in our pockets
that it fills us

Envy
behind our moves
that moves us

Envy
in the way that we laugh
it consumes us

Envy
in the way that we stare
it reveals us

Envy
in our thoughts
it consoles us

Envy
in our hunger
that sates our minds

Deleterious saturation

Repletion

Ludicrous repletion

Envy
when we are thirsty
it chokes us

Asphyxia

the most miserable sarcasm
as we strive to not suffocate

Envy
when we give up
it defines us

Envy
in the way we are
so we are not.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

I heard the bells on Christmas day
Their old familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet the words repeat
Of peace on earth, good will to men.
