Jealousy, The Apparition - Poem by Catherine Yen

An apparition infused in the vein of blood
Overflowed and immersed bit and byte
Moment and second
Down to the foul body
It eats your throat
Bites your tongue
Swallow the eyes
Creeping like a heretical thing
Erode your brains
Smash your reason
Fermented like a dark wave
Clothed with sin
Drown you in lust
Lives that lie
An iron hollow of doubtful world
On them the fire got hold, stir abruptly
Fickle and eccentric
With flesh and blood, it chained me for a chain
Cleaved to me, clinging as a fire to cling
Covered with love as a covering tree
The feeling ever shed in a grievous grave
Shame consume one shameless
Neither do I kneel nor adore you
Enlighten life as the naming of a name
Jealousy, the apparition
