Kill that friend

Acid  in your gut

Bile in your mouth

Burning our skin

Every inch of it

Wanting to throw up

Wanting to give up

kill and maim yourself

A mole under the earth

looking at all the shiny people

on top of the mountain

shaming you

mocking your

smallness

fueling your feeling of

insignificance

worthless and pointless.

Jealousy is a toxic friend

who will corrode your insides

and puncture your skin with tiny pinpricks.

Do yourself a favor.

Tune into inspiration,

get on that mountain

and kill that friend.
