Lady K

Little Green Monster

I see him with her

I hear the monster purr

I see them hug

Now I feel it tug

she makes him smile

It's about to go wild

I see her touch his cheek

my pH is about to go to its peek

he glances at me

oh I hope he doesn't see

how my little green monster

is about to devour


It controls me like a ruthless dictator

sending pejorative comments as whispers

It builds up my insecurities

making me feel like one of the unworthies

I try to keep it on check

but it loves being unkempt

never wants to be tamed

dressed or changed

It wants to be above all emotions

with its rapacious  devotions

Oh how I wish to stop being a prisoner

of this annoying little green monster

      It is one of the few feelings that creeps up and consumes, it's been a while but ewwww I don't like that monster.
