This post was written in 3 minutes.
A poem about jealousy and betrayal between friends, told from the perspective of "jealousy", even though it's titled the grudge.

I am the master of disaster
I am the savant of disguise
I am there but no one sees me
Though I’m right before their eyes
I reek but no one smells me
I shout but no one hears
I’m that little bit of jealous hate
That grows throughout the years
I start out small and mindless
Smaller that a mustard seed
Until I gain complete control
Of every action word and deed
But envy, spite and anger
Their just feelings you want to say
But feelings control your thoughts
Can take your mind your life away
Can turn you from a friend
Into a traitor just like that
To take what your best friend has
You will stab them in the back
And when you finally have it
You'll see I tricked you in the end
You may have got what they had
But you also lost your friend
