Envy,jealousy, longing
a clenching in your chest
looking at what you want
instead of the hard reality

Mixed feelings of hate
with dispair and distaste
what would it be like
to be them

Surge of hope and loss
hopes raised
to be plummeted
further and further down

What would it be like
to be them
just for a day
or a moment

Very good poem of free verse with stanzas, the meaning is clear, concise, and completely relatable.

I related to this poem well because they're many envious people in the world. I wouldn't want to experience envying someone,but I have before. I was pleased with the tone of the poem as well, it felt calm and serene.
