Arts Lab Writing            The Arts Lab: Writing            Arts Lab Photography


by Nevada Kerr

Why do you begrudge me
Is it anguish or disgust
Or a desire so forlorn
There's no longing you can trust

Is it flattery or slander
When you ogle me with lust
If my heart could stand the danger
I'd willingly adjust

But you my green-eyed monster
Are zealous for control
The ever-watchful sponsor
Coveting my soul

An optical illusion
A visionary bloat
Groping in confusion
Staring and remote

Lying patiently in wait
With a telescopic charm
Confiscating dates
Protecting me from harm

Deliberate and discreet
And always out of sight
Inch by inch you creep
Descending like the night
