Only jealousy

Such a cliché
The simple statement
Sometimes it hurts so much
To lose the one you love
This isn’t some rock song
Or lyrics to a ballad
Starting off loving yourself
Is important
But to lose who you love
You must be so overcome with yourself
To lose touch with reality
And actually decide
You come first
Was there a time
When they came first
Or are you just a child
Missing the toy
Your friend now possesses
Was the love ever there
Or just an imaginary thought
You made up after the fact
Of realizing maybe what you had
Was good enough
And you need to stop striving
For perfection
When it’s staring you in the face
