Forbidden fruit


Your forbidden fruit.
I am Eve and I want to eat that fruit.
I know I shouldn’t but I want to.
Looking at the fruit it looks so juicy and succulent.
I want to touch.
Taste it with a kiss,
And then take a nibble or two.
I want to taste the sweetness,
Lick up the juices.
I fantasize about that fruit.
I want it, want it bad.
But every time I think of reaching for it,
I remember but God said …
So am left torn between my desires and God’s word.
Forbidden fruit sings a siren song to me.
I want to be seduced
But God’s word calls me to turn away and walk away.
Forbidden fruit looks so tempting!
