Seven

Seven

~*~*~

A sin, a song, a silent sigh,
Seven deadly songs are sung.
Softly sinking into the seven seas,
Sweet sabotage has sadly not begun.

Are we meant to drown at the hands of Avarice,
Only to find the bloodied hands were our very own?

Or will the hands of Lust strangle,
Like the demons that lay us down to sleep?

There are many whom we may Envy,
But none do we Envy more than potential in us lost.

With Wrath we wish to burn all those who cross our path,
But at the end we alone burn, for Wrath destroys only its parent.

Does our hedonistic Gluttony have any limits?
Or are we doomed to become Gluttons in body and soul?

Sloth capriciously creeps into the cracks of our being,
Until our minds have been completely consumed, leaving vacuum.

Vanity gives us the illusion of floating higher than all,
But when falling, we feel the greatest pain as we softly touch the ground.

A sin, a song, a silent sigh,
Seven deadly songs are sung.
Softly sinking into the seven seas,
Sweet sabotage has sadly not begun.

The above has been posted for Thursday Poets’ Rally Week 27, hosted by Jingle.

Like I promised earlier, I’d still post this one. As for an update on the previous post, I think I will be back sooner than I thought. At least I find it terribly hard to stay away from writing and blogging. Hopefully that terrible empty dead feeling goes away, it’s the only thing holding me back. One death is bad enough, a second is unbearable!

Also, if it is not too much trouble for you kind bloggers, please check out my photography blog. I might continue to update that, provided I go out and take photographs. Here’s the link: Ripples Through this Imagination.

All the best to everyone!
