I have never been envious of you,
Never do I feel jealous, too
That you have their company
I don't. I just don't.
I only feel compassion for you.
I too had once undergone
That insidious catastrophe
Of living a life without self-love
Brimming with self-denial
As inherently required
Just to be with them.
