A Mistake Like No Other
Why did Eve ever take a bite of that deceptive apple?
Oh, how she must have regretted it
As the weight of knowledge fell upon her shoulders
Making them creak and ache.
As her cheeks flushed
When she looked down at her bare body,
Its youth slowly draining like a broken faucet
Drop by drop.
As the nature around her
Slowly began to dull:
The flowers, so bright and colorful but moments ago,
Could only be seen as black or white
Through the thick veil known as Opinion
Which had been covering her face from the moment her teeth touched the apple's
The air had become cold
Its smell, less sweet
And yet, her mouth began to moisten
As she became aware of the growling coming from inside her mind
The hunger for the quest for knowledge
Even after Eden had fallen
She believed that with
She would regain her power and immortality.
She would become equal to God himself
And wipe that mischievous smile
Off of his kind yet unforgiving face.
What was her reaction,
As the knife stuck out of her bloodstained chest
Murdered by the "gift,"
She had given herself
Poisoned by the nectar,
In that dreaded apple
Et tu, Brute.
