Longing to commit the sin

 Written for Jingle Poetry - Seven Deadly Sins



Wonder why it is called a deadly sin?

I feel dead without it.

Longing for those days

That I felt it every moment

The need and longing insatiable

And now, I would gladly commit the sin of lust

To spend eternity in hell

To feel alive, to feel the longing,

the intense heat of desire

The real sin, is living a life without it.

  1. Very electric poem. Crackles nicely through word choice. Enjoyed how you look at the 'other side' of living in a chaotic world.

  3. Thank you everyone! I am a poet (wannabe) Who questions her own skills. This helps, makes me think other people "really" do like reading something I have written!

    Thanks again
