Forbidden Fruit

Forbidden Fruit

I was in the garden of eden,

With the love of my life, a maiden.

Oh, how happy I was to see her,

To embrace her, hug her, kiss her!


We sat down under a blossoming tree,

Careless in love, our spirits soared free;

The forbidden fruit hung over our heads,

Oh, what naive creatures were we!


Like a serpent slithering unawares,

The fallen fruit rolled over to our feet;

Ignorant we ate it without any cares,

And our souls were filled with conceit.


I saw the heavens part above me,

The sky opened up in a flare;

All the other creatures remained carefree,

Except us, for we became aware.


I uncovered the hidden truth,

Sins I had committed in my life;

Judge me, for I am a sinner,

For I had coveted another man's wife.


And yet, I desperately held on,

The last vestiges of my dream;

I chose eternal fire thereupon,

To hold on to the sins of my love.


Like the proverbial Adam and Eve,

I was cursed to forever grieve,

To always dream the lie of a fresh start,

Oh, how I despise and hate my heart!
