In Jealousy's Captivity
unknown

Without notice,
 1
she let jealousy enter.
 2
She was lured by illusory eyes,
 3
projecting shades of green.
 4
Perhaps the blazes,
 5
ignited by envy's pupils,
 6
blinded and disillusioned her.
 7
 
 
Now, she is constrained  
 8
in the core of covetousness,
 9
tangled in threatened thoughts,
 10
longing for another woman's possessions.
 11
In silence and secrecy, she voices
 12
forbidden desires and resentments--
 13
"I want her looks, her job, her life!
 14
I want the attention
 15
that my best friend effortlessly receives!
 16
Why can't someone see
 17
that her strengths weaken mine,
 18
and her losses become my gains?"
 19
 
 
Jealousy taunts her,
 20
dangling the unattainable
 21
and enticing her to believe
 22
that destroying another's soul
 23
will somehow soothe her own.
 24
She yearns for rescue
 25
from her tainted thoughts.
 26
 
 
She's unaware that insecurities
 27
led her to wallow in envy's arms,
 28
and overlook the positive traits
 29
that God bestowed her.
 30
Upon cognizance of jealousy's
 31
existence and the reasons
 32
that she initially let it in,
 33
she'll become empowered
 34
and escape captivity.
