Jealous

When your world
is crumbling down,
I’ll be your shield
from the pain around.

What’s this I see?
You’re trying to fly?
Trying to be free?
You’ve almost got it.
No, that can’t be.
Why can’t you suffer
just like me?

I’ll steal your youth.
Watch as it all bleeds out.
I’ll clip those wings
and watch as you fall.
Let me see you suffer
from the world’s cold embrace.
Please look to me
with tears down your face.

Don’t worry, baby.
Mama’s got you
nice and safe.

Prompt: Jealousy
