Jealous… Me?

via Daily Prompt: Apprentice

 

I always thought

I was allergic to jealousy…

 

Not getting the point

of the useless emotion.

 

Wasn’t it? Pointless,

to doubt if you trusted?

 

But you made me your apprentice,

and taught me against my very will…

 

To envy others, some

I didn’t even know.

 

And you fed my

newborn, growing jealousy…

 

Nurtured it, watered it

with thoughts of others

getting the best of you…

instead of me.

 

You would have grinned,

had you known…

How new that feeling was

to me.
