THE ARCHIVES: Chapter 42

Ugly, Ugly Jealousy

I know it’s a horrible thing
to be jealous of a person like Lindsey,
but it has overtaken me.
What did she do to attract a guy like him?
Is it because she’s so pitiful?
Because she’s so alone? (So am I.)
Because she’s picked on? (So am I.)
Because she’s poor? (I’m not.)
I could almost hate her,
but I stopped myself before
I sounded worse than
Maddy and Amanda.
Believe me, it was hard to stop
the rush of ugly, ugly jealousy.
Instead of acting like a monster,
I turned away from the misty window
and started writing instead.
