forbidden fruit

they say when you know,

you know.

but what they didn't say is that

there's no known handbook on

how to let

forbidden fruitful phrases

dribble from your mouth

without making a mess

all over yourself.

but these words taste tempting,

like a fistful of big berries.

and i'm eating as cautiously as i can,

careful not to let any juices

escape from the corners of my lips.

but i'm hoping you'll

lick it up anyway,

and tell me how good they taste

coming from me.
