Deadly Sin

Deadly Sin

A Poem by Alpha Female

For all the darkness in the world, nothing is as dark as the human heart,
And that is where she lives
Red are her lips and as dark as the color of blood
Black is her clothing which stood equal to the dark night
Gold is the jewelry she wears to match the kindness of her heart;
Her eyes resembled mine, the same dark green I once knew so well
Green as a sacred forest,
The closest thing to the most beautiful and terror invoking I've seen 
Although she never showed mercy
In the shadows she always lurks
Waiting to be summoned
In our darkest hours we all need her to save us,
When desperation and pain settle in,
She is our only defense.
Common people call her anger, religion calls her a deadly sin,
For I must agree, she is wrath.

I, a child dressed in white, bare of any jewelry watched her move in silence as the angst started building in.
You see, that night she saved my life.

To this day, she still sits here with me.
Counting the sins I commit to her name time after time
No remorse.
You see that night she saved me from being an innocent child in this world of darkness
Where all humans are after the satisfaction of their desires,
Slaves to their physical wants, unable to distinguish what is right or wrong
That is the reason why I summoned her that night, 
To save me from the inhumane humanity our kind created.
She's now a part of me

And for the sins I commit in her name,  
I show no remorse for I avenge all wrongdoing done to me 
Burying my hands deeper in the well of sins I have committed.
But I am not one of them.


Help me...

Beautifully written! You portrayed this type of behavior and illness extremely well and I love the use of hinting at former events.

You could do without the "Help me..." at the end however. It's pretty obvious that the character doesn't enjoy this from the start and it seems kind of cliche and lazy.

Overall, great work!
