Lust (Luxuria)

This third poem is a part of the anthology of poems based on the Seven deadly sins.Do read the previous ones too, if you haven’t yet.

Lust(luxuria/fornication) – The need to fulfill intense sexual desire, which leads to fornication, adultery, rape, bestiality, and other immoral sexual acts.

“In love the other is important; in lust you are important”
― Osho


A lecherous look from your eye
reeking of the lust
where you are hiding
those impure emotions
you are camouflaging
with love

the desire to fornicate
an intense streak
you are a puppet to the
sins of the flesh
a feeling
you just can’t shove

these unbridled desires
which you can’t seem to
it only reflects
the monster you
are hiding in

the lustful thoughts
soaked in with
ingrained impurity
makes you
a slave of the incontinence
from within.

      1. My pleasure Megha! Again I say, your world is such an enjoyable place for me. The big bonus is I can converse with the talented author when she isn’t on the dance floor!
