Greed

With eyes of jade it smiles to me,
Looking down it bows to thee,
Smile crooked and teeth black,
Sweet whispers, words to attack,
It calls on to my name,
With a soothing voice to blame,
Telling, nudging and begging
Towards mistakes it pushes me away.

That beast in the back of my mind,
Telling sweet words,
As I decide,
To break, to go,
One more step then needed,
Then required I know.

But I fall a victim to it,
Never innocent I try,
To grab what is not mine,
And in the attempt to reach,
I feel it, burning in my soul,
My heart enslaved as it takes the toll,
Grasping for the unforgiven,
Tumbling in the dark as I fall.
