>"The Threat" NaPoWriMo #2

>No-one could believe that you wanted to burn
the house down; jealousy and rage can send
someone that far away into such a fantastical position
when white wicker bedroom suites are no longer
smudged with lies hidden behind a façade
Drive by evenings with watchdog eyes spying
while plotting her demise
No-one would believe that you wanted to burn
the house down with family and pets sleeping
in their beds; envy and insecurity make a
person lose a grip on their reality … ludicrously odd
ideas take them over instead
Everyone was astonished when you decanted
gasoline and lit the match

Process notes:
4. Write about something that happened 15 years ago.
A Big Tent prompt.
