The Most Bitter Wine

Sour grapes make for the most 
bitter wine.
I drink from it daily

Seeing lives I wish to lead
Moments I wish were mine
Familiarity breeds contempt
Brewing this hatred inside 
No longer happy for you
No longer living through you
But resenting you
Questioning, why you
Not me
Turning all these sweet things 
sour
Turning all this love into 
rancour
Turning these brown eyes, 
green

Filling my glass to the rim
I take another sip.
