I finally got around to doing it - I've been super busy or I would've made it sooner xP

Jealous

I see her hand in yours
Exactly where mine used to fit so comfortably
And I admit I'm starting to miss
You snuggling up so close to me

I know I shouldn't
Because I said I moved on
But my heart hasn't felt as whole
Since you've been gone

I'm missing you
Oh so desperately
But I won't try to take you back
I'm not giving in to my jealousy

But it's her eyes you look into and smile
And her hair you stroke
And I'm trying to turn the flames of my love
Into nothing more than smoke

jealousy

jealousy is not red, yellow, or blue
jealousy is a faded green
tinged with sadness
when you see that someone has replaced you
when someone else's fingers are where yours fit perfectly
and they've filled the place in another's heart
that used to be yours
and jealousy isn't a creature with mighty roars,
it's a quiet growl, with glazed eyes and tear-stained cheeks

Erin | 123 comments Just A Little Jealous

I didn't want to love you,
I didn't want to fall in love,
I knew I wasn't ready
And that maybe I'll never be

But hearing you talk about her,
Hearing your friends joke about her-
It just drives me insane
And baby I'm not angry, just a little jealous

I think about you
More than I should
More than I want too,
But your so in love with some other girl

I'm not angry
I'm not upset
Just a little jealous
Just a little jealous of you


~Akweley♡Mazarae♥~★☆★oblivion★☆★~I CAN'T BREATHE~ (nala13) | 322 comments my throat chokes on the green ivy erupting from my esophagus
as I watch you all walk by with ease,
as if life is such as breeze,
as if you have no cares, no worries,
no more fucks to give
I watch you walk by with your smiles
fingers interlaced with those of significant others,
happiness not spray painted on your face
but embedded into your sweat glands,
and I wonder
how is it possible to breathe in life and not want to die,
how can people live in this world and feel alive,
how can i exist next to those are in bliss even as the world is crashing around them
my soul is emerald at the center, a shining, sparkling gem
of envy
I'm jealous that you're all so happy
when I can't even breathe

I can count by jealousy
Like a child, I count up on my fingers
One sticky green smile, a lollipop left
Too long in the sun
Two dark green gazes
Meeting, sparking, the flaring green gas of hate
Of love.
Three way tie, strings that bind the group together
When only two can win
And even the winners may be losers.
Four green hearts,
Friends, together conspiring against former loves
They somehow didn't love enough
To allow this happiness.
Five dead bodies. Murder? Suicide?
Debatable.
And when everyone runs around and screams,
And people are crying all over the news
And the world seems covered in a black haze
I know different
I know it's really green
I know how it all started
I saw the first green gaze
