Forbidden

image

Caught between reality and fantasy
Floating in and out of a dream
A rip tide of desire draws her in
Then a tidal wave crashes her back onto shore
For a brief moment she was free
In the stillness of night
Out of all sight and sound
The ache throbs
Forbidden fruit
Never to be tasted for fear of its poison
Her delights remain a mystery
Given to those who share her fate
The only ones who can consume
