Forbidden fruit, the sweetest
Ripe and succulent,
it shines with moonglow’s light.
Left, just hanging on the vine,
a hand-span’s length away
through yonder fence.
And the gate is hanging all ajar,
left open in a welcome gesture of appeal.
Tempting, temptress of a sensuous
and blind desire ever rising
to the fore of mind again,
and happiness is lingering,
just waiting for a chance to sing
through juices that enticingly
swell the skin close to a bursting point.
When alas, a light, a flick
and the hand that had just touched its fruit
was taken back again.
Dimly lit, they never saw
the bulge within his pocket.
A startling night of starlight
beckoning and then revealing
another chance of reckless
with this, the lost, forbidden fruit,
