Envy

I grasp in anticipation
As the darkness draws me in.
I gaze my self in the mirror
And see the monster
I am becoming.

This monster
Has become a friend.
A constant companion
Who will not pretend.

It shows me things
That I do not have
And it poisons me,
Until there is nothing
Left to grab.

  1. This is really good. May not even just describe Envy, but also about people who are slowly but surely hiding themselves behind a facade, and eventually being unable to see their real selves eventually.
