Me, Myself… And Everyone Else

Just a young Irish girl, looking for somewhere to share my poetry.

Envy October 10, 2012

Finally, a return to my Seven Deadly Sins/Seven Heavenly Virtues series! I know it has been long enough. In part this was because I was having a really hard time writing Envy and Lust. I just couldn’t be happy with them. And although admittedly they are still both nowhere close to how I want them to be, they are still a lot better than before. Hopefully I’ll have Lust up soon.

It is like a disease.
This…
Desire she has.
Yet it is not Lust.
Gluttony.
Avarice.
She desires that
Which is not hers to take.
She only wants him
Who does not belong to her.
And so
In this way,
By desiring only
That which she cannot have,
She resigns herself
To a life
Filled
With misery.

Very different from any of my original drafts. I hope you like it.
