    And as I see two becoming one,
    Your spirits and your personalities,
    Connecting and affecting one another,
    Seeming to be no longer platonic,
    Sister and brother…
    The truth is….
    I must fight to resist demonic,
    Intervention and focus my attention,
    On something else that is less upsetting,
    And not letting my thoughts control my actions.
    I talk to my Father about concerns,
    Including helping me to learn,
    More about things of the spirit,
    And how to constantly live it.
    But I also realized that lately,
    The adversary is blatantly,
    Trying to mess with my mind.
    The truth is….
    I can feel envy,
    Creeping up on me,
    Gradually, progressively.
    But I can’t let it destroy me.
    It annoys me and my FATHER,
    And keeps others from seeing our resemblance.
    Is this the truth?
    You want him.
    You now see what I saw,
    And wanted more and more of,
    His attention, his love.
    Is it,
    The truth?
    Well I guess that,
    I will just have to handle the truth…

    This was awesomely posed. Sounds like envy is being nipped in the bud, that's how it has to be done.
