The Fire

How can I explain this feeling?
This burning sensation,
Destroying me from the inside-out,
Flaming bits and pieces of sanity,
This jealousy taking over,
How can I pretend it's nothing?
This raging desire,
Driving me out of my mind,
Sparks exploding from every direction,
This jealousy consuming me,
How can I live without knowing?
This true feeling of love,
Eating me alive,
Smoke slowly entering my lungs,
This jealousy finally ending it all.

Thank you both for your feedback. I wrote this because I wasn't trusting my boyfriend when he was around a girl that he has had a crush on for three years. But I realized that a relationship cannot last without complete and total trust in the other person. Anyway, I'm glad you enjoyed it. Thanks again :)
