Green Eyed Monster

It grabs you silently by the heart

Gives you a sudden start.

Fending off yet another

Possible, maybe lover.

Sexting, email all are suspect

Loss of all your own self-respect.

Chase them down give them misery

Such is your sad history.

Look in the mirror long and hard

Shatter your love shard by shard.

Can’t admit it is he that he┬ácheated

and made your love defeated.

The list goes on and on it seems

Shatters all your dreams.

The spikey tail of jealousy and its’ sting

You cannot cope, you cannot bring

Yourself to understand your love

Is not a sweet and gentle dove

But a poorly disguised rat

and it isn’t the others that

Betrayed you.

Dismayed you.

It was the viper in your breast

That destroyed your little nest.

 

 

Seven deadly sins – Greed, Lust, Gluttony, Pride, Sloth, Wrath and Envy

7DeadlySins
Occurred to me that the things I have been posting are really about all of these.

Greed – Mine all mine all about me. Let me take what I want whether or not it is mine. Never satisfied with what they have.

Lust – Sexting, cheating, perverted love just for the sake of sex and power. Make no mistake they do go hand and hand skipping down the road to ruin together.

Gluttony – More and more and more. All we can get while half the world starves we throw out food and waste that which would save some from starving to death.

Pride – Seeing no one elses point of view. Always right never wrong even when it costs you friends, family and relationships. Who cares if everyone rejects you? You still have your pride.

Sloth – Doing the minimum at a job you are paid to do. Cheating on time. Not using your potential. This we are all guilty of.

Wrath – Uncontrollable anger locking you into situations that it is very hard to extricate yourself from. Saying things that once out wound and can never be recalled.

Envy – Not being satisfied with what you have. Always wanting what someone else has but you are too lazy to go and get it yourself. The most useless of sins.

In the coming weeks I will look further into these and see are they still relevant to today’s world?? Don’t we need some of them just to survive in a dog eat dog modern environment or is it that we use that as an excuse. Without the church or other positive influence what becomes of a child surrounded by these actions?

Thanks for reading and as always I really would like your thoughts and ideas of these things that rattle around in Galesmind.
