Jealousy

I saw you, Such a beautiful thing, Enraptured with another, I have no place to feel this way, No reason to feel such a thing, Yet jealousy coursed through my veins, Both of us have moved on, Though I must admit, Such things are not complete, To fall for someone as I did, I cannot simply leave such things behind, A hoarder of hearts, A merchant of love, Who can blame such a thing upon me, To see you happy without me, To watch you grow as a person, Jealousy, such a beast, Does not leave such things, For I still feel for you, Things I have no right to feel, Yet somehow I bury them, For the better, I bury these sweet feelings, Only to delve into jealousy at such trivial things, Perhaps love is not meant at certain times, Maybe I was destined to love you, Though now is not the time, Perhaps not even the right life, Live free, my dove, Boundless amounts of youth, Forget all we will never build, Be happy in the ways you must, For I will never be, My heart is forever broken, As fate incites
