I liked this Ann though envy is a difficult topic. I experienced a lot of envy from my mother when I was younger and I had never thought it as ‘severing fragile wings’ and ‘gorging on innocence’ although thinking back that is in fact what probably happened. Thanks for encapsulating so beautifully in language.
