Covet

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.

Nunca dejo de asombrarme del mundo, mucho menos de quienes vivimos en él. Creo en códigos viejos y el valor de una promesa, creo en el verdadero sentido de la riqueza, creo en los valientes y los que arriesgamos todo porque es lo correcto. Los nuevos Caballeros tendremos que esforzarnos por no dejar de existir.
