Covet

written by: Ventrux

To covet - to desire (what belongs to another) inordinately or culpably.

 

I never wanted to be the one you love, even though everything was pointing to it,
I never pretended to be the inhabitant of your fatuous wishes,
I never asked to be there to watch you fall,
I never ever let that happened
If it had depended on me.

I usually watch you from the dark,
Sometimes coveting,
Sometimes disapproving,
Sometimes I want to break your spirit,
Even though I know there is no way to win,
My soul screams to me:
We do not believe in a no-win scenario.

I covet you most of the time,
Most of my life
Beyond my own sanity,
Beyond your wishes and my promises.
