A Poem by Ivan Mauricio Urrego

Lust, one of the standards of old decreed
embraced by human being’s carnal greed.

Lust which begets the Commandments sixth and tenth,

if lust and love was one in end

What love must one’s condemn?

But the adulterous eyes and flesh’s lust

praises the face of sin’s fleshly must
toward lover’s plight come the joys allured,
thoughts and sighs of passion have you lured

the dim-lit souls, the craving’s glee
to covet gardens where fruits forbidden be.

Lust’s flame easily lit in feeble desires of the heart,
lascivious acts succeed as faithful oaths depart.
Hazy, binding circle of love’s hunger in delight
loyalty’s Melodies part ways in blight
man or woman poured in guilt, hence
there is penance, not much less to lost innocence.
