Sins #1

Lust Lechery

Sociality pelted along,
as civilizations throve, rugged,
with customs, portfolios,
establishing beliefs,
spurring right-wrong,
and
world though beauteous
shunned to colossal lechery,
reasons must I tell?

Though lust not lechery,
to think not act,
indulges not a potent opposite,
but must I tell,
neither attraction, nor love,
craving bodily amazement,
like addicted to the living
like a mere object,
to ideate thoughtful orgasms,
isn’t ill and stupendous?

Though might stand confusion,
amidst horrid dubieties,
if lust were love, attraction,
were marriage,
but must I tell
though not bound to church,
is sanctity of free will,
decorum of consciousness,
and
to heed too much
to something,
as if world is blank,
never is righteous.

    you pack a lot in that small space…whew…wonder what lust would look like…perhaps a leech on the chest, or zombie chewing a heart….the ifs in this part i think are often confused for the reality…

  2. i read it a few times now and still think i couldn’t grab everything – such a lot of images in this…and hate to be repetitive but the same lines that wolfsrosebud mentions stuck out on me as well

  3. I’m mulling over the meaning in this and what I’ve come up with may not be what you intend, but it makes me think of the fact that often organized religion is hung up on sexual transgressions so that the forbidden becomes even more attractive. Just my take on it.

    • of-course, the forbidden fruit, who doesn’t want it, and craving for the not to craved for has definitely pulled up strings.
      I am not religious per se, and have always felt that to solve the social problems among people with so many religions, peace cannot be achieved if everyone were to blindly follow theirs, a line on part of humanity and it’s values must be made certain, and our willingness to accept the right that shall relay comes from our conscience.

  4. I got the same impression Live2Write2day. ….very good poem. Wish I could express more, but I have my own beliefs about organized religion. Not too thrilled how politics and religion are intersecting in our Government. I remember something in my Civics class about this. Excuse the rant! Your poem got me thinking, therefore, typing.

    • lust is more of an absent minded quest to conquer our own understanding of love and responsibility to redirect our attractions and let them run rampant. Negativity lies within all but practicing our mind righteously is kinda what is required.

  5. Religion has been used much too long as a way to control and hinder humanity. This of course, leads to be think of all the women who were burned, accused of the most horrific things, because a man found himself tempted? I could go on, but this is your space, not mine! lol Got me to thinking!

    • comment is your space, use it all up if you want, I won’t mind πŸ™‚
      Religion at first binds and coordinates, but with societal revolutions and hence improvements, I guess perspectives are obtained and a change is reflected.
      I would not call men especially since women are prone to it too, but I guess with historical revelations, I can’t deny your stand.

    • portfolios are more like books of history that have been made the basis of social interaction and public decorum, they are wise but pieces of paper lying on ground preserved for it’s value seems rather obscure if not picked, read and worked upon.

  6. Very thought-provoking piece. So much of what is done (committed?) in the name of religion around the world seems to me to be evil. I suspect there’s nothing new about that except for the media which so very eager to tell us all about it.

    • committed? may be, there are examples where it’s relevant
      Nah, it’s not new, and media for sure tells a lot but that’s their job, and our job must be to listen and think, we often forget the latter.

  7. Love or lust what can we say, both are sometimes a Sin while sometimes a path to spirituality too πŸ™‚

    you really pack a great deal of thought in such a short poem.

  8. For me the first verse tells of the beginning of our downfall through parental, societal and religious dogma when we are first taught “beliefs” and “right and wrong”. Beliefs are thrust on us before we even have a chance to use our own minds to know what we believe or not. And the worst of it is to be labeled “sinners”! It breaks my heart. We have so much to un-learn…

    You sure did get a lot of thoughts going here! That’s a good thing.

  9. I felt I had to read this twice to really see all you were saying. I love the style you used in this poem, though at first glance disjointed, it’s got an eloquent flow with it’s free-verse like form. It seems to me too that religion and “beliefs” thrust on us throughout our life try to govern what is right and wrong, despite that what is religiously right or wrong may not be morally right or wrong. A great poem, lots of food for thought! Thanks for sharing!
