Jealousy

Jealousy overcomes me like
an anaconda suffocating my prideful puffed penguin chest
and the thought of your hand running across the skin of someone else is grievous
So uncomfortable, I feel a wave of something wearisome, and it's left a skunky sour taste in my 
mouth, 
nauseas at the fact that you could look that way.... at someone ELSE
 A wave of irritability floods over me like a tsunami of self doubt,  I take my aggression out on 
myself
curse obscenities to numb the guilt of my defeat in all interpersonal relationship realms 
I know that I will never measure up to the standards of perfection, that I have daydreamed up
I feel like a child reaching up to the cookie counter, but I can  never manage to reach that 
perfection shelf
