Sisters , We
(Betrayal contest entry)

For I have lost my sister, dear, when foul was fair through eyes unclear
A looking glass reflects no ill, if that before has conscience still
Yet sorrow strikes remorseful chest , of carnal deeds I now confess
So green the envy in my soul, its stench and bile consuming whole
For she the cream so constantly, my parents' love I failed to see

<>  <>

Dark moths did feed my rancid quest; envious eyes belied her zest,
Oh, how the times I wished her dead, now words I cringe of having said
A rose so crisp; a flower in bloom; whilst I, a bud, still closed in gloom
Infectious lies; words chastise, her simple heart quelled my despise
Elegant swan, how graced her art, each movement thus, an angel impart

<>  <>

Begone this day of poisoned deed and allow my wicked heart to bleed
My sister's love I stole for greed, with wanton heat I took his seed
That day I laughed and pushed the door to find her cold in life no more
And darkness came upon my way; mine eyes grew black for light of day
Cold fingers grasped a note held tight, with struggled breath I read her write

''Sister, mine, by love decreed, I want not what by hearts agreed
If, he, you love then perfect be, my broken heart now sets me free.''

<>  <>

A silence now for foe or friend, my voice now lost no more to send
Never to speak from lips condemned, a jealous heart can not defend
Betrayal is free, twins were we;  took the only thing she hadn't shared with me
Each night a ghostly mirror be, she strokes my hair unconditionally
No words are said, for tears are free, yet somewhere there she waits for me

Earned A Seal Of Quality

Envious sister could not feel love because
of envy and jealousy, and so, committed a
disastrous deed, and of it, a tragedy.

In envy, seek not ugliness in others, for perhaps looking
closely within yourself you will find the beauty inside
that has always existed, made ugly by the greenness of your eyes
