Forbidden Love


Apples aren’t meant for people like me


They’re forbidden for those who go by she


They’re meant for those who go by he


I promised myself that I wouldn’t take a bite


I’ve been told all my life that this isn’t right


I promised myself that I would refrain


But it seemed impossible to not give in


Like a drought desperately needing the rain


The longer I stayed, the more I craved


I felt the blood pumping through my veins


The sweetest looking fruit I’ve ever seen


I couldn’t help myself no matter how hard I tried


One little bite and my hunger was satisfied


The sweet apple pursed against my lips


I continued to eat the apple, not caring about the pips


Not caring about the juice dripping down my face


This is forbidden


But oh, how I love the taste


Entrapped in her warm embrace


I couldn’t let this apple go to waste
