Jealousy Poems

 

Jealousy has
Frightening eyes.
Jealousy has
Grinding teeth.
Jealousy has
A cunning face.

 

Jealousy can live
Without a mind,
Without a heart,
Without a soul,
Even without God.

Human jealousy
And divine Ecstasy
Are eternal strangers.


Jealousy
Is an aggressive boxer,
A repulsive dancer,
A hopeless singer
And a useless storyteller.

 

Jealousy,
Before you entered
Into my life,
I was the world's
Richest prince.
Now that you are in me
And I am for you,
I have become
The poorest street-beggar.


Jealousy,
You are my constant
Nightmare-mind.
You are my constant
Love-absence-heart.

 

Shortest is the distance
From jealousy to hell.

 

Jealousy,
You are your own
Ultimate
Self-destructive-indulgence.

 

Excerpt from My Jealousy Is My Madness-Burden by Sri Chinmoy.
