Jealousy This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

By
   Jealousy is like a volcano,
desiring what others have,
not content to beitself.
Emotions building up,
longing to escape,
churning like hot lavainside,
burning.
Trapped, like thick steam,
when unable to bevented
has no other choice,
but to explode in a crash
of suddenfury.
A whirlwind
of ash and lava erupt
into the heavens,
like thefeelings once imprisoned within,
now unleashed at last.
An awesome displayof fire and fury.
Words and emotions are spewed out,
unwilling to berestrained any longer,
dormant for too long.
