I'm hollow inside
I've been all broken out
Fought a war with the pride
In the seven sins house
As they're breaking me down
And they're making me scream
Just surrounded by hounds
And I struggle to breathe

Prayed for more from one seed
Than could ever have grown
Overtaken by greed
In the seven sins home
Now they're cracking my ribs
As they're holding me tight
In the hell where they live
In the dark of the night

Think of all that I had
And who took it away
I am getting so mad
Where the seven sins play
And they're pushing me down
As the floor pulls me in
The room fills with the sounds
Of their cries and their screams

Think of them hurting me
In the land I called home
Neon lit gluttony
In the seven sins throne
They all pull up their chairs
And stare into my eyes
They say all that is theirs
Can all also be mine

They all trusted me
They shouldn't have done
I was filled with envy
In the seven sins slum
Where they all tied me down
And they all kissed my lips
While I slowly drowned
In the seven sins kiss

And now speaking of trust
Since the moment I changed
I felt nothing but lust
From the seven sins cage
With one look in the eye
I get someone to hold
With the typical price
Of that somebody's soul

Think of all that I lost
And I know I should care
But once you're  blessed with sloth
In the seven sins lair
They took all that I had
Replacing it for their own
And now I can't be mad
With the light on and them home

Very enjoyable :D It is interesting because i wrote a poem (not as good as this one!) about the seven sins, and you have taken a different approach completely :)
