Sin

SIN

I am the raging sea in the middle of a stormy night.
The serpents venom that would allow you to succumb to pain.
And the fire that would swallow you whole.
I am sin,
Your hearts darkness you cannot circumvent from
And the nightmare that would haunt you eternally.

Fear me darling,
For I am the demon that would bring you hell.
And a flicker of my fingers can set you on fire.
Watch out my prey,
For a single mistake can twist your world.

Such an expressive and evocative poem which portrays sin in all its many devious ways. Wonderful poem and the perfect photo.
