Destiny

Destiny

Stepped out of the shower

Put on her robe and looked at me

Surprised

I wasn’t

 

Fate

Bit the onion

Tears in her eyes

Betrayed her intentions

I knew her intentions

 

Longing

Looked out the mirror

Her eyes smoked and sullen

I could get lost in them

But I won’t

 

Desire

Took the A Train

Rattled to the station

My loins were unimpressed

Whatever

 

Envy

Turned blue

I would really enjoy

What she beholds

But no

 

Ego

Smokes filtered

Rounds up the peasants

Dances around the fire

I succumb

 

Pride

Goeth before the fall

So says the Bible

Who am I

To argue?
