It waits, looming in the shadows,
Hiding in the darkness, until it strikes.
Briefly, momentarily it appears
Showing your hidden character. It exists
Within all of us. Waiting, knowing,
That one day it could appear,
The green-eyed monster, that we
Continue to fight. We fear
What would happen if it were to
Control us. Every action, every word
Consumed by that which makes us blind.
The truth is feared throughout
The world. But it still strikes, and,
Briefly, momentarily, it reveals
Your character at its worse.
