So much more than merely green

Fifty Shades of Jealousy

by Rachelle Allen

One Word: Jealousy Contest Winner 
Its color is described as green
but from my perspective I have seen
its damages and they have been
the fieriest of red-orange flames,
stoked by mind games,
then scalded by ever-fervent claims and blames
of betrayal and devastation,
pre-meditation, calculation,
resulting in relationship mutilation.
The final color for participation
is a miasmic blue.
