Paradise Lost



I hungered for the
forbidden
beady eyed fruit
trapped in my dreams

Passion, its texture
Desire, its flesh
baited into its
promises
I clucked and smelled
before a peck,
gnawed, chewed
and ruminated:
all the animals
alive in me

Its sweetness crept
into my flesh
I savored it till I
spat out the pips
that betrayed the taste

Paradise lost
love banished
I wandered
wild
into the hard-sifted
candour of dream

Love's betrayals
transformed my
wilderness :
I set into
exploring the
honey trappings of
the iridescent fruit.
