I write what I feel…

Forbidden Fruit


Forbidden Fruit

She entered the room
And sat on a chair by the window.
The rays from the sun
Lit up her hair like a halo.

She reached over to take
A ripe nectarine from the bowl;
Her teeth glinted white
As she took her first bite of the fruit.

A pear and banana
Were next to follow with gusto.
She stretched like a cat
Before going outside to the pool.

Pursued by eyes
Admiring the grace of her walk,
An innocent child
Masquerading in an adult’s disguise.

  1. Clever, rather sultry 🙂

  2. Lovely poem Adee. So many young girls look adult to prying eyes. HUGS


  3. It makes me sick to my stomach that young girls can’t grow into their own worth without some sick pervert wanting to steal their youth. Don’t you just sometimes want to use a stun gun in the most sensitive of places just to teach them a lesson? 😦
