Strange forbidden fruit

I have eaten the strange 

forbidden fruit 

it is no ordinary fruit 

it resembles an apple

sweet 

vibrant red 

pure 

shape so inviting 

but take one bite and you will see

how evil this fruit can be

bitter

rotten to the core 

causing irrational behavior 

heartbreak

 deception 

this is no ordinary fruit 

like a no good car with a nice paint job 

it will chew you up and spit you out 

as you do the same 

it will leave a bad taste that never goes away

this is no ordinary fruit 

I have eaten this strange 

forbidden 

fruit

    The ill tasting fruit, to represent the ills of a lifetime. We tend to chew on this mysterious plum all too often. Love gone sour, a poorly chosen occupation, an illness, a lost friend or family member, all the things that make us wish we had chosen differently, or that they would not have happened. But, such is life, and we struggle along.
    Your poem was a great comparison of life's fate to choosing a bad fruit. You wrote with creativity and imagination. Your images and word choices were great. Liked this a lot. - Phil A.
