Why I Write, Explaining this Deadly Sin

October 22, 2018

PROMPT: Why I Write

(i write for sin,
for 'twas in those pleasures
i was conceived.)

in Gluttonous consummation,
indolent fingertips ache for words
to arouse you

where i cannot.
can't kneel and swallow. Envy
disgorges all consumed.

a word mimic
in the name of Pride. 
Greed for grandiloquence.

this, prose, allows
my Wrath to pass idly;
writing unconfrontational Sloth.

pining always about,
plainly, the most palatial pleasure
lust, lust, Lust

Darling, it seems
I am seven out of seven.
deadly is love.

deadly is pleasure.
pleasurable is death. and so
lovely is sin.
1. I am seven out of eight, actually. Word-Wallowers have prove writing to be the 8th sin
