Forbidden Fruit

Dear forbidden fruit, how I want a taste

in and out of your dark garden I dance

comfort is found in this familiar place

I know my demise is here in your hands.

Sour, when my teeth sink deep into you

kind of fruit that quenches an impure soul

completely aware the pain that ensues

secretly, only you and I shall know

Hidden beneath delusions, lies and leaves

a place to put my endless thoughts to rest

can’t escape your garden, won’t ever leave

you can have all of me without contest.

Tried many times to desert you before,

you’re the one thing I could never ignore.
