absolute sinner

forgive me lover for i have sinned,
i tasted all seven deadly sins:
pride – when i dreamed that i deserved such a total love,
greed – when i wanted you just for myself,
wrath – when rebelling against your need for distance,
sloth – when i prayed for my death instead of your life,
envy – when others talk to you and you to them, but i just watch,
gluttony – when reading each word of yours like the holy book,
lust – whenever you’re in my thoughts…
so tell me, lover…
would a lifetime of “i love you”‘s be penitence enough?
