Envy

envy ggl

It begins with a slight envy
that thrives to become
a nasty old jealousy

someone’s wondering why
you think you’re so special
because they’ve been rejected
you are too down-to-earth
and your demeanor’s so welcoming

they smile in front of you
trying to get info from you
to later attempt to ruin your plans
from the back-stabbing jealous, non-friend

keep your new enemy close
picking up their vibes
then at the right time
take a day off
to return to a show

for that was the day
you were to receive “special” attention
but you knew to hold back
and you ended up calling in sick
and won’t hesitate to do it again

when they tell you they missed you
don’t forget to hold back your laugh
from the guileful enemy
that considers herself your friend…
