Forbidden Fruit

An apple wasn’t the only fruit he used

Garnished with everything edible
he could possibly find
even using sweet scented flowers
to further lure and to entice

He peeked out from behind
those black soul-less eyes
mouth hidden
but the devil couldn’t help
so aware that everything
about him was saying

‘Bite me’

I wanted this to be deeper than just about fruit. Despite it being fruit the pic seems somehow darker than that  (to me)

  1. I love how you developed this loathsome character, so slyly and underhandedly. Thank you for sharing this devilish verse, Bren.

  2. Ouch! Too funny….everyone went so silly on this one….mostly…and they’re all wonderful! great read!

  3. It sounds to me as though he left the door completely open. I don’t know if he was clever enough for the Devil’s game. 🙂

  4. ooo yeah the devil will find a way in if you leave the door open just a crack…and nice follow back to the devil, i did not see it coming even with the apple in the beginning…nice turn ma’am

  5. Wow … this is dark, Bren … like in:” Come here, little girl … it’s all good … good for you” . I’d rather eat my finger nails, me thinks …
