I Am A Sin By Nature

In truth, I open my eyes.
I am punished
for my power.

I have refused water to dry people
and tied anchor to those who heard the word
and believed it.
I became a burning flame in
bedrooms of strange

men, who desire reward
like Corinthians say they deserve.

I am a sin by nature,
by thought,
by curve,

and undeserving.
I open my eyes.
I am power.
It is true.

"I write because I must". I am a poet of dark imagery. I write what I feel and how I see the world at given moments. I love connecting with other writers and seeing life through their eyes, (in words). If you like what you find here, please check out my chapbook, Some Things Ache In The Dark.

  1. Great write. ” I am a sin by nature,
    by thought,
    by curve,
    and undeserving.
    I open my eyes.
    I am power
    It is true.”
    Again great write. References to how some view people as born sinners or like you mention sinners by nature. Subtle references to the Bible. I love it.

  2. Your prose always leaves me spellbound!

  3. Wow, you are really good for being so prolific! Usually poets who write as much as you do run out of things to say originally… Love your work!

  4. That was pure awesomeness.

  5. Can you tell, I’m playing catch up here? ;)
    This one is very intriguing. It’s kinda of almost biblical and also a little bit like a riddle.
