BREAKING ALL THE RULES...not a 55


Forbidden Fruit


My heart is heavy in my breast.
I toss and turn, I cannot rest.
What I have I would reject.
What I want I can’t expect.

I’d gladly take you in my arms,
Though all your words are practiced charms.
You’ve travelled on this road before,
I’m nothing special, just one more.

Yet I would gladly leave my own,
To spend one night with you alone.
This for you a moment’s pleasure,
But for me a priceless treasure.

By Cathy

Lovely poem though. Much squishier than I'll ever manage, after the first stanza the old cynicism always gets me.

Michael said...

The old ones are always the best...been a long time since you wrote this. Glad you published it.

lime said...

I rather miss those priceless treasure moments. But, then, I was born on Valentine’s day.

Perfectly crafted, and like Ann I know who my forbidden fruit would be. (She and I would have to share, but there's enough of him to go around...)

Serena Joy said...

Beautifully done, Cathy, and it carries a wistful message so many of us can identify with.

Very true to life. Awesome job!

snowelf said...

Cathy,

did you write this for me!!! ;) I know you didn't, but it's so absolutely appropriate in my life right now. Of course, I love it.

Thanks again for stopping by, it's great to see you. :)

I can also totally relate to the bad day you were having in your other post... ugh! I always feel like all I can do is laugh at those things and take comfort in that fact that I'm not alone in this whole "being human" thing.

ttys,

cathy said...

puerileuwaite, um... was that you?

hammer, Wanting what we don't have is what drives so many of our endeavers good and bad.

snowelf, Many of my commenters identified with this poem and as for the one of those days post, the stories I could tell! You are definitely not alone.

Ali said...
