absolute sinner

forgive me lover for i have sinned,
i tasted all seven deadly sins:
pride - when i dreamed that i deserved such a total love,
greed - when i wanted you just for myself,
wrath - when rebelling against your need for distance,
sloth - when i prayed for my death instead of your life,
envy - when others talk to you and you to them, but i just watch,
gluttony - when reading each word of yours like the holy book,
lust - whenever you're in my thoughts...
so tell me, lover...
would a lifetime of "i love you"'s be penitence enough?
