Today’s Daily Prompt: Green-Eyed Monster
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
