Jealousy

Jealousy
Invidia casts an evil eye,
A look her smile cannot belie,
When punctured in her jealous heart,
And poisoned by the serpent’s dart.

The coils of anguish ‘round her breast,
Devour and strangle without rest.
Suspicion-laden, thus engrossed,
She serves alone as guest and host.

J.T. Rodolico
