Poem of the Week: Week 7


As is true every Monday, there were many good poems posted. “Longing to commit the sin” presents us with a different perspective that is paradoxical and refreshing. Wysteria begins: “Wonder why it is called a deadly sin? / I feel dead without it.” Embodied in the poem is a passion for life, and a challenge to embrace it. Read and enjoy. 

Longing to commit the sin

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.

A great choice indeed.
I enjoy the poems most that have a twist or moral "smack dab" at the end!
