This poem takes from the concept of "original sin" and uses it in reference to a specific person as the object of sin, rather than an apple. Difficult to explain, really.Rated: Fiction K - English - Drama/Romance - Words: 154 - Reviews: 8 - Published: 07-30-04 - id: 1680602

This poem was born out of a conversation I had with a friend, and a picture I have currently as the background of my computer. It takes from my feeling as I look at this image and the concept of Biblical "original sin." I'm not an extremely religious person and I mean no offense through this poem, so please no flames.
You—the apple of my eye.
I see you there with your coy Mona Lisa smile.
You're so full of mystery, yet so predictable.
I see the hands of your clock strumming away at the strings of my heart.
You—the fruit of my desire.
I hear the chords of your voice so melodic in my ear.
You have a way of making me swoon, yet you remain motionless.
You tempt me, but would you satiate my desires?
You—the forbidden fruit of my naivety.
