Green-Eyed Lady

Today’s Daily Prompt: Green-Eyed Monster

Green-Eyed Lady

Green eyed-lady with your strawberry hair

Freckles dancing on your skin, so fair

You come with a label of jealous-filled rage

One that must be controlled as you continue to age

When you look at another who’s happily wed

Do thoughts of “why not me” ring through your head?

Do you see what you should have been, could have been now?

Do you see your mistakes and regret them, and how?

Do you have the right to envy another’s good days?

When you’ve been the maker of your miserable days?

Do not look at others as they smile, for the truth

Is that they choose to be happy beyond their own quiet grief
