7 Deadly Haiku

By Vicious Pixie

 Lust

Eyes burning through me
sneak naughty bathroom quickie
gasp clutch drowning lust

Gluttony

consuming your soul
gulping it down like champagne
there's never enough

Greed

Pursuit of power
clawing for domination
you take what is yours

Sloth

Lay with me darling
we'll never leave this safe place
waste away with glee

Wrath

Molten white hot rage
embracing the beast within
some have teeth and claws

Envy

I'm not your jacket
else I'd be keeping you warm
lucky fucking coat

Pride

Swelling in my heart
knowing that you desire me
I want to shout it
