Jealousy


Brimming with swelling fury 
Aching enough to twist love to acrimony
Despised overtly by all and sundry
Even by those who cleverly mask

Bitter is the persistent sensation
Hoisting high upon slightest provocation
Unhealed wounds deeply inside
Wishing just to harm every one

Reveals vulnerability on pondering
Just a basic craving for love and care
Expression of feeling made abundant
Yet left unattended and unheeded

  1. Wow.. that was quite intense!
    I guess behind feelings of hatred or bitterness, you can always find some unrequited love and a plea for attention.
    Or is that just wishful thinking??

  2. true, there is always a vulnerability behind rage, locked down love behind the numb sadness..
    well expressed!

  3. Apt words and the lines are really dense...both in content and style...nicely knitted KP...liked it a lot...hatred and jealous are comparatively less discussed topics in poetry...but those are the things which should be written...great attempt:-)

  4. Rightly depicted in words. Jealousy as the dark negative emotion.
    Nice pic as well.

  5. Very well said.. Jealousy is said to be a self destructive emotion but it can also be used devastatingly to destroy others.. And yes, the feeling is bitter as your words say!

  6. That was vehement, deep and intense.
    "Unhealed wounds deeply inside
    Wishing just to harm every one".

    I love that line ;-)

  8. KP,

    Lovely analysis of a common emotion...(it could be the force that made man go higher faster stronger...of course, the reason for many a downfall, too...)

    Well done!!!

  9. Nicely written KP...
    "Expression of feeling made abundant
    Yet left unattended and unheeded" loved this ending part... :)

  13. Reveals vulnerability on pondering- very true. Very well written- the words you have used bring out the harshness.

  15. It's not mere jealously but something innate in us, or rather, me. When you love something, you'd want to keep it safe, and yet you'd want to hurt it to the point it breaks, just to see what if. And while doing so, you'd just back down afraid.
    It's not jealousy, yes, sometimes I am jealous of myself too.
    Such are the fragile tendencies.

    Beautiful post, appeals to me.

    Cheers,
