Forbidden Fruit

Updated on July 13, 2013

I had a rendezvous with wrong

disguised to look like right

Deception clouds the flirting heart

to dim revealing light

She stood before me clothed

in want to be unclothed

And I was there to satisfy

her sacrificial pose

An old acquaintance, met by chance

come to tempt my soul

and I, no different to her eye

if truth to all be told

Forbidden fruit, forbidden bed

the keeper far from sight

come to gratify ourselves

upon the altar of delight

I fell with such abandon

the apple wasn't mine

But the snake's relentless whisper

"Come with me and dine".

"What harm in wrong, if none will know

such secrets hide from light"

But morning woke upon my bed

and light revealed the night

the night is gone, the secret lives

I must live the lie

The serpent smiles, someone knows

I can not hide from I!

      Thanks for stopping by. When writer and reader meet, poetry finds the life for which it was written. Look forward to purusing your work

      Merry Christmas my friend! Always appreciate your responses. It is often our failures that are responsible for our sucesses. Where we go with failure makes us we become. With the good lord in my corner, I can not hide from me. Be well!

      We cannot lie to ourselves, to that person looking at you in the mirror...We can rationalize, excuse, and even applaud a lie, but we cannot hide from it in our heart of hearts...To err is human...recognizing this we must forgive ourselves in our hearts, and pray to God that She Who Must Be Obeyed does not find out !! Personally, I would be scared stiff to lay next to the redheaded, omniscient, woman I married, not sleeping for fear of saying something that would motivate her to slip into the kitchen and look for the fillet knife...No Sir !!! I'll just keep my legs crossed, thank you....

      I like the line " I had a rendezvous with wrong disguised to look like right

      Deception clouds the flirting heart, to dim the revealing light "...

      Ah, sweet lust, such intoxicating nectar we drink...

      Happy holidays my friend...Larry
