My Jealousy

 

Is a wave of magma,

                        as fiery red as her hair,

the mouth of it yawns and erupts like Vesuvius over Pompeii.

           Rage, a rain of ash

                        coming down over peasant and nobleman alike.

 

It eats everything in its wake, leaving only the shells behind to bear witness.
