"Haiku of deadly sins"

by C. Ikpoh

I am who I am
Our lives forbidden pleasures
You are who you are

Ether ignites all
I pour suffering anger
Bold visions of red

Fantasy gives possessions
Your world in my hand

Eternal hunger
Insatiable consumption
My bottomless core

Obsession of I
Only loving mirrored self
I'm the beholder

Serving gods of more
Unfathomable riches
All earthly wants quenched

Frozen ambition
Flesh, mind, soul, all lethargic
Motivation's death
