The Forbidden Fruit

The Forbidden Fruit

Garden of Eden

As the passerby stooped low
To admire the wild flower
Little did he know
That it was the flower which
Swallowed away my heart
For it was a man-eater
Destined to bloom
Into a forbidden fruit!

Her eyes were sparkling pools
Inviting one to step in
Little did I know
I was diving into
A swamp of sinking sand
To drown into eternity
Never to surface again
Into the real world!

Now I stand away
And gaze at the flowers
From a distance far
For it is now I know
Fragrance touches more
Than a distant dream
Love doesn’t last as much
As stabbing pangs of pain!
