#30 of 365 – “hauntings”



I realize something about myself

I’m not real happy to see,


I secretly envy people

who have more money than me.


and not just envy, it’s more of

a bitter, hungry kind of pain


that spills over

into a sour and ugly disdain.


I want what they have,

quietly covet their belongings,


falling victim to my own

naked, lustful hauntings.
