Sin

 -----------------------

Greed
Feel my need
Feed me to fill
this aching hole
Fill me
Give me more
yet nothing
will console.

Gluttony
And even when
I've had enough
it's NOT.
One more
morsel
and one more
until I pop

Sloth
Gorged
and comatose
Struggling to lumber
Unmitigatedly
Unmotivated
Sedated
Let me slumber

Lust
Fan the flames
my flesh awakes
reaching for your seed
Fill me now
with wanton
fire, desire,
and slake my need.

Pride
Bow down
before me now,
my pet, you're mine.
Kiss my feet
my sin replete
as I sit on my throne,
divine.

Wrath
How dare you
break your chains,
you fool, obey!
I'll whip you
beat you
make you
rue this day.

Envy
But you've
escaped me
and left me here to cry.
And then I see you
happy with her
so now I'd
rather die.
