Seven Deadly Sins: Envy

Writing Challenge: Jan 23, 2018

Prompt: Write a poem about each of the seven deadly sins. You cannot use their names.

*Seven Deadly Sins: Part 4 of 7*

 

I feel it:

In my chest

In my stomach

Aching against the walls

Rising up-

Turning my eyes green.

‘Why can’t I have it?”

“How can I get it?”

“Why can’t it be me?”

I watch like a vulture-

Resentment growing.

“It isn’t fair”

“I deserve it”

“That should be me”.

It grows- ever darker

I care for nothing more

Than having that thing I see.
