This Must Be Sin
By Arin M. Lawrence
  
  
I pick up the phone…
Is this a sin?

I dial your number…
Is this a sin?

I miss you…
This must be sin

Because every time I feel in want of you, there’s this feeling I get, telling me that I shouldn’t be in want of you

I want a sin free life
But I don’t want to be free of you

So if this is a sin,
Then I must be burdened with it until you come and fill my want with you

Until then,
I am living in sin
